Kamal Meena, a distant relative of a slain IRS officer Sriram Meena, committed suicide on Friday by jumping before a train at Shivdaspura railway crossing.

The suicide note written by Kamal held Additional DCP (East) Yogesh Dadhich and ACP (Sanganer) Rajesh Meel responsible for his suicide, alleging that he was harassed and pressurised by the police to forcibly admit that he had killed Sriram Meena.

"A case against both the officers was registered under section 306 of IPC (Abetment of suicide) and 3- 2(5) SC/ST act with Shivdaspura police station last evening," Police Commissioner Biju George Joseph said.

Additional DCP (South) Prahlad Krishnia is investigating the case.

Kamal Meena was questioned two times on Wednesday and Thursday in connection with the killing of Sriram Meena, Deputy Director at Directorate of Central Excise Intelligence, who was found murdered in his house in Jagannathpuri locality in Sanganer on June 10.
