Dubbaka S I Kills Wife, Shoots Himself
Hyderabad: A sub-inspector of Police, Chittibabu shot his wife to death and then committed suicide by shooting himself with his service revolver at his residence today afternoon, at Dubbak in Siddipet district. While his wife died on the spot, Chittibabu succumbed to the bullet he shot into his head at the Siddipet hospital later.
While the officials claim that the SI resorted to the extreme step due to some personal problems, Chittibabu’s relatives alleged that the higher officials were victimizing him and suspended him from duties three days back.
A native of Kadapa district, Chittibabu is reported to be disturbed about his son who got married to a girl against parents’ wish sometime recently. He is survived by a son and a daughter. The DIG and other higher officials visited the spot and an investigation is on.
Siddipet police commissioner Shivakumar, speaking to a TV channel, said that a high level official is appointed to go in to the matter. He said Chittibabu was suspended previously in 2014 on corruption charges, and he had not yet received the recent suspension orders. He said that if it was proved that his superiors had harassed him, action would be taken suitably. (NSS).
