Hyderabad: Dr Sashi Kumar, who had yesterday fired at Dr Uday Kumar Rachakonda, has allegedly committed suicide at a friend's farmhouse on Tuesday.

As per reports, Dr Kumar killed himself with his licensed .32 mm pistol, the same firearm he had used to shoot at Dr Uday Kumar from pointblank range in a car in the busy Himayatnagar area of the city. Another doctor, Dr Sai Kumar was also sitting in the car when the incident occured.

The dispute was regarding Laurel Hospital in Madhapur which the three had opened along with some NRIs.

Shashi Kumar had invested Rs.75 lakh but felt he was sidelined by Uday and Sai and had called the duo to Himayatnagar to discuss the matter. During a heated argument, he allegedly opened fire at Uday.
