“When the woman allegedly threw away the man’s mobile into the water near Chunchanakatte, he allegedly threatened to release the videos on social media. The woman’s family then approached the KR Nagar police station for help but allegedly received no action or support from the police,” the officer added.

Shankrappa Gowda, one of the villagers in the area where the victims attempted suicide, said: “All four came in a bus and alighted at Thalabetta. They walked inside the forest road for about one kilometre. After we saw the four lying unconscious on the road, we informed the MM Hills police about it.”

Chamarajanagara SP Padmini Sahoo said: “The incident occurred at around 9 am. Police rushed to the spot and, with the help of villagers, shifted to a local private hospital. They were then shifted to Chamarajanagara district hospital. When one of the victims was declared dead, we informed Mysuru police officers about the matter. We have registered a case of unnatural death at the Male Mahadeshwara police station, and the investigation is ongoing.”

Following the incident, the higher authorities suspended KR Nagar police inspector PP Santhosh Kumar, Assistant Sub-Inspector B Girish, and head constable H Nagaraja on charges of dereliction of duty.

Mysuru district additional superintendent of police B N Nandini said: “The preliminary investigation proved that the police officials who received the complaint did not handle the matter properly.”
