Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) has been under fire from opposition parties for the death of a 20-year-old who was purportedly killed by suicide earlier this week in Andhra Pradesh’s East Godavari district.
However, according to police officials, the drastic action taken by the dead Shyam was motivated by a failed love affair, and the leaders of the ruling party were not responsible. Chandrababu Naidu, the leader of the TDP, has called for a thorough investigation into Shyam’s passing. Shyam was a native of the East Godavari district’s Chintaluru hamlet.
The TDP has blamed the YSRCP leaders for their involvement in Shyam’s death and has demanded thorough investigation.
Konaseema district’s Superintendent of Police, P Sridhar said that a 20-year-old was found dead on the morning of June 25 at his house in Konaseema district.
The death is estimated to have occured between 9 pm on June 24 and 6 am on June 25. The local inspector went to the spot and investigated the case.
On primary investigation, it seems to be a case of suicide by hanging and a case has been registered under Section 174 of the IPC.
The police said that the man first cut his wrist with a blade, which was found in his pocket and later hung himself to death. The police sent the body for post-mortem. The body was handed over to the parents and they have not objected to the investigation, police said.
The police have said that Shyam was involved in a love affair and he was weak in his studies, hence committed suicide.
“Deeply saddened by the tragic and untimely demise of Shyam in Chintaluru, EG District. The suspicious circumstances surrounding his death are alarming. I strongly urge for a thorough investigation into this matter, ensuring justice is served.
It has been alleged that YSRCP members are involved. Their involvement must be probed impartially. Let’s ensure transparency prevails and justice is served,” TDP leader Chandrababu tweeted.
