A software engineer, Mohammad Tajuddin (26) committed suicide by hanging himself allegedly due to police harassment.
According to sources, Tajuddin was in love with his colleague Vishnubhatla Rama Yasodhara for the last six years. They worked in a government organization as contract employees. Later the victim joined a software company. The woman is a resident of Satyanarayanapuram and the couple decided to marry. However, the family members rejected their wedding and she had since been avoiding Tajuddin for a year. The woman lodged a complaint with Satyanarayanapuram police on March 20 alleging that Tajuddin was harassing her. Police took the youth into custody and gave counselling. They wared him of severe action if he stalked the woman.
Police again summoned the deceased and made him to suit in the police station for a few hours. Taking it as an insult, he hanged himself to the ceiling in his residence on Saturday night. The deceased family members staged a protest in front of Satyanarayanapuram police station demanding action against her.
