Bengaluru, July 19: A lady police sub-inspector in Bengaluru today attempted to commit suicide. Roopa Tambad attached to the Vijaynagar police station in Bengaluru is said to have consumed dart (fever) tablets. She is currently being treated in a hospital.
This incident comes barely two weeks after deputy superintendent of police. M K Ganapathy committed suicide. The reasons behind the actions of Roopa are still unclear.
While some sources maintain that she had attempted suicide due to harassment, no source that OneIndia spoke with confirmed the same. "We are still probing the incident," an officer informed.
It was only two weeks back that Ganapathy had committed suicide alleging harassment. This incident also led to the resignation of minister K J George who was blamed by Ganapathy.
Alleged altercation in station
According to sources in the department, Roopa allegedly had an altercation with a woman who arrived at the station to lodge a complaint. The woman and Roopa said to have exchanged words as the lady officer refused to file a complaint.
However a senior officer in the station interjected to pacify the heated situation and this allegedly upset Roopa. It is said that Roopa even called her husband before leaving the station.
Besides Roopa has allegedly shouted "I will also take Ganapathy's path. You all need to learn a lesson", sources stressed.
