Jangaon: Tension prevailed here in Jangaon on Thursday as the relatives of a youth, whose body was found on railway tracks under suspicious circumstances, staged a dharna in front of the houses of two youths, who they suspect had ‘murdered’ Boga Saiprasad (20), belonging to Weavers’ Colony.

The body of Saiprasad, son of Prabhakar, was found on the tracks on Wednesday night. Local youths, who are reportedly friends with the accused, have informed the matter to the parents and the Government Railway Police (GRP). The GRP personnel, who registered a case and transferred it to the law and order police concerned, said they had found a suicide note at the house of Saiprasad in Weavers’ Colony. In the note, Saiprasad is said to have alleged that Gollapalli Pavan of Dharmakancha and Sangarm Varun of the Weavers’ Colony had thrashed him severely, which forced him to take a decision to end the life.

“I was beaten up by Pavan and Varun. There are proofs in mobile phones. I am committing suicide after getting hurt by these developments. The duo should get the maximum punishment,” he stated in the note purportedly written by him. An alleged love affair between the relative of Pavan and Saiprasad has led to the rivalry between the duo. Pavan had been allegedly threatening and harassing him for the last three months to end the relationship.

The parents and relatives of Saiprasad had staged a dharna with the body in front of the Pavan’s house in Dharmakancha, demanding that the police take action against the accused. After staging a protest for nearly two hours, they have later taken the body to Varun’s house and staged a sit-in there for some time there.

S Vinod Kumar, ACP, assured the agitating people that the police would probe into the incident and see that the suspects get the maximum punishment. He also said they would give protection to Saiprasad’s whose names were mentioned in the suicide as they were also facing threat from Pavan and Varun.

Speaking to ‘Telangana Today’, GRP Inspector, Kazipet, K Swamy said they had registered a case and transferred it to the law and order police for investigation. It is said that six special teams were formed to nab the accused who are on the run.
