H C Srinivas (40) was found hanging at his residence in Srinagar last evening.

Family members alleged frequent transfers and harassment by a BBMP Corporator has led to Srinivas committing suicide.

They alleged that he was frequently transferred from one ward to another ward against the norms of at-least three years, at the behest of a Corporator, because of which he was under “depression” for some days and did not report to duty.

Police said they have registered a case of unnatural death and investigation is underway.

Meanwhile, a few members of the BBMP Employees Association staged protest near a hospital, where Srinivas’ body was taken for medical procedures and demanded justice for him.
