Hyderabad: A leader of the Telangana BJP unit allegedly committed suicide at his house here on Monday, police said.


Gnanendra Prasad (45), a member of the party’s State executive committee from the Serlingampally constituency, was found hanging from a ceiling fan in a room of the penthouse by his personal assistant, the police said.

The reason for him to resort to the extreme step was not known; no suicide note was found either, a police official said adding that a month ago, the party man had met with an accident and suffered a fracture to his leg. This morning, Prasad told his PA not to disturb him as he was going to get some sleep.

Later, when the PA went to the room to give him breakfast and knocked at the door. There was no response, so the PA broke the windowpanes only to find Prasad hanging dead, the police said. Based on a complaint filed by his family members, a case was registered.



Suicide is preventable. If you get any such thoughts, consult or seek expert help.
