Submitted by Editor on Thu, 2016-07-07 22:18 Bengaluru: Close on the heels of the suicide of Kallappa Handibag, yet another DySP, who was posted at the IGP’s office in Mangaluru, allegedly committed suicide by hanging on Thursday evening. Fifty-one-year-old M K Ganapathi, was found hanging in Vinayaka Lodge in Madikeri, police said. Delay in promotions and family problems may be the reason for him to take the extreme step, police sources said. He served police for 24 years. Ganapathi was serving in at the departmental inquiry section at IGP (Western Range) office. He left a suicide note alleging mental torture by his seniors. He had shared his agony with media persons in Madikeri a few hours before he killed himself, sources said. Ganapathi began his career in 1991 as a Sub-Inspector and he served as Inspector in various police stations. He was promoted as DySP and he was unhappy over not getting a suitable posting, police said. He was suspended when he was the Inspector of Rajagopala Nagar Police station in Bengaluru for allegedly pocketing money recovered from a thief. He allegedly had registered a case filed by city-based businessman in 2013 last year about the theft of 1 crore rupees from a locker in the godown owned by a relative. However, in the FIR, Ganapathi had allegedly mentioned only 24,000 rupees as stolen. Ganapathi joined police as a Sub-Inspector. He was promoted six months back as DySP and transferred to Mangaluru IGP office from Bengaluru. But he delayed joining duty by three months. Police sources informed that he faced a departmental inquiry into an alleged fake encounter of a rowdysheeter in Yashvanthapura police station. Later, he was transferred to Madivala police station where he faced departmental inquiry for alleged misuse of a seized property. He had also served as Police Inspector in Ullal and Kadri police stations in Mangaluru.
