A techie based in the United States returned to his home state Andhra Pradesh to end his life over alleged marital discord, police said Monday.
Immadi Anil Kumar (30) was found dead in a cab outside the residence of his sister in Kukatpally on Sunday evening.
A native of Guntur district in coastal Andhra, Kumar had landed from San Diego Saturday and checked into a hotel in Kukatpally.
According to police, he hired a cab Sunday to go to his sister's house in Eenadu Colony in the same area.
On reaching the destination, the cab driver was shocked to see Kumar lying dead in the vehicle. He alerted Kumar's brother-in-law Suresh.
Police suspect the techie consumed poison after boarding the cab. In a suicide note recovered from his pocket, purported to have been written by Kumar, he stated that he was ending his life as he was unhappy over marital issues.
He also wrote that he flew down from the US as he wanted to die on Indian soil.
Kumar had married Swapna, a native of Kodad in Nalgonda district a year ago. She had returned from the US 10 days ago and was staying with her parents.
The case of suspicious death registered by the Kukatpally police, however, took a new twist Monday with Swapna alleging foul play. She said she suspected that her husband was murdered.
A police officer said they were investigating.
