Hyderabad: E. Swapna, wife of former tahsildar Erva Balaraju Nagaraj, who committed suicide by hanging himself in Chanchalguda prison a few days ago, approached the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC), alleging that her husband was falsely implicated by the ACB to protect some top brass.

She suspected foul play in the events that took place and added that her husband’s death was a murder through conspiracy.

In a complaint lodged with the SHRC, she said that her husband was made a scapegoat. “My husband was healthy and his brother-in-law received a final video call on 13 October at 9.30 am from his mobile phone. As per my information, my husband was hoping to get a clean chit in the case,” she said.

She said that Nagaraj was confident about his case but on 14 October, the family received a call from the prison officials that Nagaraj committed suicide by hanging from the window and his body was taken to the Osmania General Hospital (OGH).

“We rushed to the OGH where we found Nagaraj’s body in the casualty ward,” Swapna said, adding that she had demanded the CCTV footage in the jail from 13 October and 14 October but the officials did not furnish the same.

Swapna said Nagaraj has got acquittal in the case when it was earlier probed by the ACB. She requested the SHRC to render justice to her and her children.
