Surat, Sep 21: A 2009 batch IAS officer, Raja Murugan, 26, from Chennai was found dead, hanging from a tree outside his house in the Union Territory of Daman on Monday, Sep 20.

While the police are clamining that he committed suicide, his cousin Sridhar K said, "Murugan was a bold and straightforward man and had no reason to commit suicide."

The body of Murugan was spotted by his neighbours at 1:30 am. Police sources said his wife Sangita had recently come to stay with him. The officer ended his life when she went out of the house for a brief period after a fight.

A chair was found below the tree from which the body was hanging. "Primarily, it seems family problems may be the reason for the suicide," said R P Mina, chief of police, Daman.
