Udhagamandalam: In the yet another incident related to the property, a computer assistant of the late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s Kodanad Estate was found hanging in his house on Tuesday. The police said they found 24-year-old Dinesh Kumar hanging from the ceiling at his house in Kotagiri under mysterious circumstances. The death comes more than two months after one of the security guards at the estate bungalow near here was murdered by a gang on April 24 and a suspect died later in a road mishap.

Another suspect in the break in-cum-murder was seriously injured in a road accident that left his wife and daughter dead.

Kumar's body was taken to Kotagiri Government hospital, where a postmortem would be carried out on Wednesday, police said.

Family sources said Kumar and some of the other staff in the estate was reportedly discussing two days ago about the fate of their jobs with the likely change in management of the sprawling estate. Police said they were also investigating whether there was any family dispute behind the death of Kumar.

The Kodanadu estate figures in the disproportionate assets case involving jailed AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala and the late J Jayalalithaa, among others.
