The house has been locked by the local police as part of the investigation. Apart from looking for a suicide note, the team will also look for evidence of harassment by senior police officials and credible evidence.

The body of the late DySP was buried at his native place Hulgund under Harugeri Police Station limits in Raibag taluk in the early hours of July 6. Apart from relatives and villagers, his batch mates and police officials from Chikkamagaluru and Raibag were present.
