DW Negi suicide case

Shimla SP’s name reportedly appears in suicide note along with 2 others

SHIMLA- The Superintendent Police,  Shimla, D.W. Negi, is again in news. This time his name along with two other policemen was allegedly found in a suicide note. However, the police department and the police station where the case was filed hasn’t taken serious note of it.  As per report, the case was registered on June 13 in Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh. 

As per a report published in a Hindi Daily, despite mention of name in the note, police registered a case against unknown person for abetting Khyadup Gycho (खयाडुप ज्ञाछो) for suicide after his dead body was found at the Reckong Peo taxi stand about 10 days ago. However, the wife of the deceased, as per media report, said that her husband had committed suicide by consuming poison and left a suicide note in which he had blamed atrocities and harassment by three policemen including SP DW Negi as reason behind his suicide. Other two names included ASI Ramesh and head constable Hukum of Pooh police station, said Hindi Daily’s report.

The SP Kinnaur has confirmed registration of a case but didn’t give any statement over investigation. The police couldn’t clarify why no inquiry was initiated against DW Negi and two other policemen named in the suicide note.

The DGP said mere mention of name in suicide note doesn’t prove anything. On the other hand, DW Negi told the Hindi Daily that the deceased person was his relative to whom he had always extended help. He said he is surprised to see his name in the suicide note.

It’s pertinent to mention that DW Negi is believed to be one of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s the most loyal officials. He was given charge as the SP of Shimla despite being an HPS cadre officer. During his tenure in Shimla, the police remained in news for indiscipline and instances of anti-social behavior.

Though, the police has assured fair investigation in the matter, but it won’t be a surprise if  the matter remains a case against an unknown person for abetting the deceased for suicide.
