The managing director (MD) of a private hospital in Hyderabad killed himself on its premises on Tuesday, alleging harassment from the owner of the building.

The deceased was identified as Dr Ajay Kumar, and his wife Swetha filed a complaint with the LB Nagar police. The couple has two sons.

Four years ago, Ajay Kumar established Vaishnavi Hospital situated at Omkar Nagar under the jurisdiction of the LB Nagar police.

In her complaint, Swetha alleged that the owner of the building, Karunaker Reddy, began harassing Ajay Kumar mentally by asking him to vacate and moving court over a dispute between the duo. 

At around 2 am on Tuesday, Ajay Kumar went inside his office in the hospital and locked the door. When he failed to open the door in the morning, the staff forcibly barged into the room at 9 am to find him dead.

Police said that a diary was found on his bed, with names of several people including Karunaker Reddy, stating that they were responsible for his death.
