Mananthavady: The siblings of Sindhu, senior clerk at Sub Regional Transport Office in Mananthavady who committed suicide, alleged that certain other officers tried to trap her in a bribery case by hiding money in her shoes. Sindhu’s brothers P A Jose and Noble said that many of her colleagues alienated her, refused to speak to her and that they conversed with her through written notes often. Their statements were given to Deputy Transport Commissioner (North Zone) R Rajeev.
The Deputy Transport Commissioner arrived at Sindhu’s house in Ellumandam and Sub Regional Transport Office in Mananthavady as part of the department-level investigation. The statements of Wayanad RTO E Mohandas and Mananthavady Joint RTO Vinod Krishna were recorded earlier.
The commissioner arrived at Sub Regional Transport Office around 10 am and the recording of statements lasted for nearly seven hours. The statements of 11 officers, excluding AMVI and part-time sweepers, were recorded. Junior Superintendent Ajithakumari, who was suspended from work for 15 days over allegations, also arrived at the office on Friday to give her statement.
