Police inspector Chandrappa, attached with the District Special Branch (DSB) Kolar, has been arrested for abetting the suicide of a KSRTC conductor and his mother.
Maunesh and Sundaramma, the mother-son duo, plunged to death from the fifth floor of the MSC Empress apartment in Belathur in Kadugodi in east Bengaluru on Tuesday. Both were residents of Chikkanahalli in Shahpur, Yadgir district.
Mauneshs wife Sridevi lodged a complaint with the Whitefield police on the same night. The police probe, which focused on circumstantial and scientific evidence, indicate that the deaths were suicide.
The police also recovered a suicide note written by Maunesh, accusing Chandrappa of causing enormous mental torture.
Taking the note as evidence, the police booked Chandrappa under IPC Sections 306 (abetment to suicide) and 343 (illegal confinement) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
“We are also writing to the superintendent of police, Kolar to place Chandrappa under suspension, and to initiate a departmental inquiry,” said an official.
The police are also searching for Chandrappas sister Manjula, who went missing recently, to ascertain if she had a marital relationship with Maunesh.
In his statement to the police, Chandrappa had said he suspected Maunesh for his sisters disappearance as the conductor had an affair with her. He also alleged that Maunesh eloped with Manjula and married her.
Chandrappa traced the couple, annulled their marriage and brought Manjula home. But his sister went missing for a second time.
Chandrappa then invited Maunesh to his flat to search for Manjula. Fearing that the inspector would harm Maunesh, his mother Sundaramma also came with him to Bengaluru.
On Tuesday morning, the duo jumped from the kitchen utility area of the fifth-floor flat and committed suicide.
