SI from Karnataka ends life in Delhi

  A newly recruited sub-inspector with the Delhi police hailing from Karnataka committed suicide due to depression, police claimed on Tuesday.

The body of 28-year-old Thippeswamy, who belongs to Kenchaginal village, Chennagiri taluk in Davangere district, was found on a railway track in Srinivaspuri in south-east Delhi on Tuesday morning.

Thippeswamy, an engineering graduate with an MBA degree, was recruited as an SI three months ago  and was undergoing training.

Police suspect that he committed suicide by jumping before of a train on Monday night or early Tuesday morning. A suicide note has been found in his pocket, said Joint Commissioner of Police Dependra Pathak. According to the police, he had taken permission from the Police Training Institute to visit a dentist on Monday evening.

 “I have been suffering from depression for a very long time. Hence, I am taking my own life. Please forgive me for the pain I am giving you people by my selfish act," said the suicide note.

The SI's family has, however, charged that he was bullied by senior officers since he did not understand the language here. “The charges are baseless. His suicide note gives a clear picture,” said Pathak.
