The death of a journalist has been given a suicide angle by the police, but the family of the journalist alleges foul play.

The body of a 22 -year- old journalist, was found on a railway track in Unnao. A sub-inspector and a constable were booked in connection with the death of this journalist. According to the police, the police personnel have been suspended for disappearing from their place of posting, on Saturday.

Journalist Suraj Pandey used to work for a local Hindi daily. His body was found on Thursday. An FIR was registered against sub-inspector, Sunita Chaurasia, constable Amar Singh and one other person. The family suspects Chaurasia to be behind the incident as they were friends.

The suspension has been made as the SI and the constable (driver) disappeared from their place of posting without permission. A complaint has been registered against Sunita Chaurasia, the SI posted at the Bihar police station and Amar Singh, the constable, on Friday, by the family.

Meanwhile, the Superintendent of Police, Anand Kulkarni, said that as per the evidence collected from the spot and the post-mortem report, prima facie the injuries seem to have been caused by trains.

He added that the case will be probed intensively as a case has been registered on the complaint of the family members. He said that the case seems to be of a suicide.

The family members of the journalist have alleged that he was killed and his body thrown on the railway track in the Sadar Kotwali area on Thursday evening.

Lakshmi Pandey, the victim’s mother, complained to the police that Suraj Pandey and Sunita Chaurasia were friends. Constable Amar Singh was not happy about their friendship and had threatened Suraj over the phone on November 11.

She added that her son left on Thursday morning after he received a phone call. There was no information about him after that. Later they found his body on the railway track later that day.
