Hussain Sagar Lake Police organised ‘Jeevinchu, Saadinchu’ (live and achieve) programme at the Lumbini Park recently. The programme took people on a tour to Tank Bund by boat along with 50 suicide survivours to create awareness and to spread a message to people who are in distress to live and succeed, instead of committing suicide. The programme was attended by VH DCP Kamalhasan Reddy, Additional DCP Ram Mohan, ACP Surendar Reddy, officer on special duty Krishna and inspector of Lake Police P Janaki.

One of the survivors GV Ramesh, an LIC agent from Malkajgiri, narrated how he committed suicide after his parents were against his marriage and was rescued by the Lake Police. “I was born in an upper caste family and fell in love with a 25- year-old woman from a lower caste and decided to marry her. Despite objection from my family I married her. However, the harassment from my family com¬pelled us to take a decision to give up our lives together. On November 29 we jumped into Hussainsagar but were saved by the Lake Police,” he relates.

Lake Police’s message to the public

Swarnalatha, Ramesh, Rajya Laxmi and Bhanupriya were among the 50 suicide sur¬vivors who spread the message of not committing the sin of suicide and struggle to live for survival in this beautiful world. They thanked the Lake Police authorities for saving their lives by cutting a cake with them.

DCP VB Kamalahasan Reddy said, “Every few days the Lake Police prevents people from committing suicides. Most of them have financial problems, family issues, strained relationships or are unemployed. We counsel them and hand them over to their relatives.” Inspector of Lake Police P Janaki informed that they have saved 85 people of which 65 are women and 20 are men against 77 last year.

“We have 35 police personnel working in three shifts, eight hours each round the clock by 4 horses, motor cycles and the car and keep a watch on the specious people likely to commit suicide. We approach them, counsel and hand them over to their family members,” she concluded.
