BBMP revenue inspector's suicide note found

Eight days after BBMP revenue inspector Srinivas committed suicide at his home, a two-page handwritten suicide note was found by his daughter from his two-wheeler on Wednesday.

Thanuja Srinivas submitted the note to Hanumanthanagar police the same day prompting them to register an FIR against Sunkenahalli ward BJP corporator D N Ramesh and three others – former corporator P N Sadashiva and revenue inspectors M V Somashekhar and N Pradeep –  named by Srinivas in the suicide note as the reason behind him taking the extreme step, police said.

“We will send the suicide note with segment samples to Forensic Science Laboratory for handwriting verification and once we get the report, we will take further action,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) S D Sharanappa said.

In the two-page suicide note, Srinivas has named four persons who were responsible for his frequent transfers and harassment at work, including the Ramesh.

Thanuja, who is studying engineering at Bangalore Institute of Technology (BIT), was curiously looking into her late father's scooter on Wednesday when she stumbled upon the suicide note in the storage space, a police said.

Srinivas committed suicide on the night of January 16 at his home in Srinagar when the members of his family had gone outside. Around 300 employees of BBMP’s Revenue Department had staged a protest in front of KIMS Hospital where the postmortem was done.

Srinivas’ family had also complained to the police that he was upset over the corporator and a few others who were responsible for his frequent transfers.
