A resident of Holenarsipur in Hassan district of Karnataka, whose brother had been arrested in connection with the PSI recruitment scam, was found dead at his residence on May 11. Vasu, 36, was earlier working in the government hospital in Holenarsipur on temporary basis.

His brother Manu Kumar, who had applied for a job as police sub-inspector (PSI), had been arrested by the CID police. The brothers had borrowed money, which they had paid to a mediator, to secure a job for Manu, sources said.

Vasu lost his job recently. His family members suspect that he ended his life as he was depressed over losing his job, besides the arrest of his brother.
