Three days after his wife committed suicide in Prakasam district of neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, an NRI who flew back from the United Kingdom was found dead on railway tracks near Ghatkesar on the city outskirts.

M Gangaiah, 32, who was working at a university in London, arrived in the city on Friday evening from UK on being informed about his wife Rama Devi’s suicide. From the airport, he reached Secunderabad Railway Station, booked a ticket for Nellore and boarded a train. However, his body was found on the tracks between Ghatkesar and Bibi Nagar station on Saturday.

Hailing from Marturu in Prakasam district, Gangaiah was married to Rama Devi, from the same village, three years ago. The couple lived in Dubai for two years before moving to London, where he started working as a professor. Rama Devi returned to India in 2018 but Gangaiah stayed back in London. He had visited home last month and flew back to London on August 27.

Police found that Rama Devi was also planning to return to London but her visa process was delayed. As a result, the couple reportedly had frequent arguments and she was depressed.

Meanwhile, two days ago, Rama Devi hanged herself at her maternal home on Wednesday.

Her parents accused Gangaiah of harassing her, forcing her to commit suicide following which a case of abetment to suicide was registered in Prakasam district.

Following this, Gangaiah flew down to India and landed at RGI Airport on Friday. On Saturday, the Government Railway Police (Secunderabad) who were informed about a body lying on the tracks near Ghatkesar reached the spot and based on his baggage and the documents in it, identified Gangaiah.

K Adi Reddy, Inspector, Government Railway Police (Secunderabad), said Gangaiah after getting down at the airport had taken a cab to Secunderabad Railway Station and bought a ticket for Nellore and boarded a train. “We suspect that he could have committed suicide. The reason is yet to be ascertained,” said the Inspector.
