In what could lead to further twists to the DSP Vishnupriya case, a murder-accused in another case which was being linked to the DSP’s alleged suicide has now released an audio statement that he will be releasing proof of the fact the senior police officers were responsible for the DSP’s death.

Yuvaraj, the President of Dheeran Chinnamalai Pervai, who has been absconding from the police after being accused of kidnapping and murdering Dalit youth Gokulraj in June this year, has said that he has an audio conversation recording between him and a DSP which he will release at 11am on Sunday.

In the audio clip released by the caste-outfit leader, he says, “I believe that the situation is now right for me to release the proof,” and adds that, “people believe that if there is proof against someone who has done something wrong, the Jayalalithaa government will take action. And it should be done in this case also.”

He had earlier released a statement on her death accusing the police for her drastic decision.

Friends and family members of DSP Vishnupriya have alleged that it was due to pressure from the senior police officers in the investigation of the Gokulraj murder case that Vishnupriya committed suicide. The high-profile murder case received widespread attention from anti-caste-activists and there was pressure on the police to arrest Yuvaraj. In her suicide note however, she had written that the Gokulraj case was not the reason for her death.

On September 18, DSP Vishnupriya reportedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her official residence in Thiruchengode in Namakkal, Tamil Nadu. Family members and opposition has asked for CBI enquiry into the case which the TN government has refused to order. The case is now being investigated by CB-CID of the TN police department.
