A 32-year-old man allegedly committed suicide in a toilet of the Jahangirpuri police station in north west Delhi on Thursday, police said.
“Raj Kumar, resident of Kasganj in UP, was found hanging from a grille in the toilet of the police station at around 2 AM. He had come to the police station in connection with an enquiry related to a habeas corpus petition in which he was a respondent,” a senior police officer said.
Following the incident, the judicial magistrate and the sub-divisional magistrate of the area were called on the spot. Police have sought an autopsy of the body by a medical board. The family members of the deceased have been informed and all the mandatory actions are being taken, the official said.
A case was registered in connection with the disappearance of the woman at the Jahangirpuri police station.
A police team had gone to Kumar’s residence in Kasganj but he was not found there. Later, he presented himself before the police for questioning, the official said.
He ruled out suspicion of the custodial death, saying a magisterial probe was underway.
