A primary school teacher, arrested in connection with a dowry death case, today allegedly committed suicide in police custody at Sayyedraja police station here.

Following the incident, three policemen were suspended and a magisterial inquiry was ordered.

District Magistrate Surendra Vikram said Zakhir Hussain was arrested yesterday after family members of his wife, who died a few days ago, registered a complaint with police alleging that he had demanded dowry from them.

Hussain was put in police lock up at Sayyedraja police station where he allegedly took the extreme step this morning, he said.

“We have ordered a magisterial probe into the matter. Suspension proceeding has also been ordered against the Station Officer and two more constables, who were on duty at the time of incident,” the DM said.

Vikram said a panel of three doctors were conducting postmortem. The exact reason of his death would be clear after the report was received.
