A Corporator P.Sivaraprasad Reddy in Chittoor Municipal Corporation has committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling fan of his bedroom on Wednesday.
The Corporator was picked up by the police for questioning in the Chittoor Municipal Corporation Mayor Katari Anuradha and her husband Katari Mohan murder case. He was let off after a brief questioning on the same day itself. Sources said that the Corporator was not only piqued at the development but also felt humiliated on being linked to the murder case.
In the suicide note, Siva Prasad Reddy alleged harassment from police particularly with regard to the possession of a gun. He sought to highlight his health issues to show that he had no such need of possessing a weapon as he had been suffering from diabetes and blood pressure for more than a decade.
