Hyderabad man kills self in Rajasthan cop custody | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: A man arrested by Rajasthan police in Hyderabad on charges of siphoning Rs 7 lakh from his employer’s account committed suicide in a Nampally lodge on Friday.
Nampally police said that 40-year-old Ramesh Reddy hung himself from a shower rod during the day after he requested cops on guard to allow him to use the bathroom.
On Thursday morning, an assistant sub-inspector and two constables from Rajasthan arrived in Hyderabad and arrested Ramesh for allegedly transferred Rs 7 lakh, with help from the local Meerpet police station.
Around 7.30 pm, they brought him to the lodge in Nampally, but did not produce him before a concerned local court to obtain a prison transit warrant.
Officials said three policemen were guarding Ramesh Reddy throughout the night by turn.
“At 5.30 am on Friday, the ASI got up from sleep and used the washroom.
Later, Ramesh too wanted to use the washroom. He locked the washroom from inside and as he was not coming out, the cops forced open the door and found the accused hanging,” Joint commissioner of police (central zone) Viswa Prasad said.
Later Nampally police reached the spot and removed the body from the shower.
“A case was registered under the charge of custodial death and a judicial magistrate was also alerted as per National Human Right Commission guidelines,” said a senior officer.
