Raghu, husband of S.B. Roopa, who committed suicide on Feb 2, 2013 in T.N. Pura, accusing a Block Education Officer for harassment, held a protest in front of Deputy Commissioner’s office here this morning demanding action against BEO Lokesh. Roopa was working as Education Co-ordinator, Department of Public Instruction, at the time when she committed suicide. She accused her higher official of harassment.

Speaking to media persons, Raghu accused the senior officials and Police for trying to dilute the case by not initiating action against Lokesh. He alleged that though Roopa has mentioned about her being mentally harassed by Lokesh in her death note, no action was taken against him. "Police have already registered an FIR but Lokesh continues to work as BEO. Immediate action was taken against the accused in Sandhya Rani’s case by suspending 4 teachers, but my wife’s case is not being treated in the same manner," alleged Raghu.

Members of Veerashaiva Sangha, Anti-Corruption Forum, Akkana Balaga Mahila Samithi, Karnataka Rajaya Raitha Sangha and others participated in the protest.
