Three DN Nagar police personnel have been booked by the Firozabad police in Uttar Pradesh after a 22-year-old youth died by suicide on December 2. The deceased, Suraj Rathod, had been identified by the DN Nagar police as a beneficiary in a cyber fraud case.

The father further alleged that the Mumbai cops took Rs 1.30 lakh from the youth, leading him to hang himself from a ceiling fan the next day. After Suraj was found suspended from the fan, he was taken to Agra hospital, where he was declared dead.

An officer attached to the DN Nagar police station said, “Based on the details of transactions, our team visited his house to interrogate the individual. After an inquiry, we served him notice under Section 41A of the Code of Criminal Procedure, as per the law.”

The trio returned to Mumbai the next day after serving the notice.
