Teacher, allegedly grilled by ATS in Naxal case, 'ends life': Maha cops
Mumbai: Days after he was allegedly questioned by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad in a Naxal-related case, a school teacher committed `suicide' here last week.
Prabhakar Narayan Machha (64) was found to have hanged himself at his house in Pratikshanagar area of Sion in central Mumbai on January 23, police said.
He was taken to the Sion hospital for treatment but
was declared dead before admission, said an official
of the Wadala TT police station.
Police sources said that Machha had been questioned by ATS sleuths following the arrest of a person from neighbouring Kalyan town for suspected Naxal links on January 12. Machha's name had allegedly surfaced in his interrogation.
Machha was questioned and some documents were seized from his house, but he was allowed to go, sources said. Subsequently, the ATS arrested six more persons from eastern suburbs of Mumbai.
