DSP Vishnupriya death case transferred to CBCID

Salem: The Tamil Nadu government transferred the case relating to the alleged suicide of R. Vishnupriya, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Tiruchengode in Namakkal district to the Crime Branch–CID (CB-CID) on September 19, even as several political parties demanded that the case be handed over to the CBI .
The DSP was found hanging dead at her residence on September 18 evening.

The officer’s father, M. Ravi, initially refused to accept the body, alleging that his daughter was mentally tortured and harassed by her superiors. He sought a CBI probe. He wanted autopsy to be performed by private doctors and also demanded a videograph.

Adding to the controversy was the statement to the media by her friend and batchmate K. Maheswari, a serving DSP from Keezhakkarai in Ramanathapuram district, who alleged torture and harassment by officials. She said she would like to come out with the truth even if it meant loss of her job.

Vishnupriya’s body was sought to be handed over to her relatives at 3.50 p.m. Senior police officials, including DIG, Salem Range, Vidya Jayant Kulkarni and Salem Superintendent of Police G. Subbulakshmi, paid their last respects. Some members of Dalit organisations raised ‘Veera Vanakkam’ slogans.

In the morning, Vishnupriya’s father refused to sign the documents for autopsy alleging that she died due to mental torture by the Namakkal SP and due to threats from Yuvaraj, president of Dheeran Chinnamalai Peravai, who is the main accused in the case relating to the murder of V. Gokulraj, which case Vishnupriya was probing. When City Police Commissioner A. Amalraj informed the family members that the post-mortem would be performed under the existing hospital rules, they permitted the autopsy.

Family members said many pages in the suicide note were missing and they demanded that Vishnupriya’s mobile phone and laptop be handed over. Since senior officials are involved, only a CBI inquiry would bring out the truth, they charged.

Rasipuram DSP V. Raju has been appointed as the Investigating Officer. Based on a complaint from the vehicle driver P. Krishnamoorthy, the Tiruchengode Town police registered a case under Section 174 (Death under unnatural circumstances) of CrPC.
