Who did Kodela speak with before suicide?

The Hyderabad police, who have been investigating into the suicide of senior Telugu Desam Party leader and former Andhra Pradesh assembly speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao on Monday, are understood to have stumbled upon an interesting aspect.

The police reportedly found that Kodela had spoken for nearly 24 minutes with a person on his mobile on Monday morning, before he hanged himself to death in his bedroom sometime later.

Surprisingly, the phone in which Kodela had spoken was found missing when the police came back to his residence in the evening after the post-mortem was conducted and his body was shifted to the NTR Trust Bhavan on Road No. 2, Banjara Hills.

The police are on the lookout for the mobile. Through mobile operator sources, the police found that the phone was switched off at around 5 pm on Monday, when the post-mortem on the body was going on.

The police would be questioning Kodela’s family members, once the last rites for his mortal remains will be completed on Wednesday morning. Most probably, the family members might have picked up the mobile phone, say sources.

However, the police are looking into the call data records of Kodela in the last 24 hours before the suicide and also the conversation he had before he took the extreme step.

But, the social media is already agog with various speculations.

Some sections of the social media said the former Speaker might have spoken to TDP president and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu and sought his help to wriggle out of the cases filed against him and when Naidu expressed his helplessness, Kodela was depressed and committed suicide.

Other sections of media said Kodela had spoken to his son Shivaram who was in Kenya and there might have been heated argument between the two over property issues. The arguments could have forced him to commit suicide.

In any case, if the talk that Kodela really had a 24-minute talk on his mobile, it would be interesting to know with him he had spoken to. And that would give a big clue for his suicide.

Watch out for more developments.
