A 43-year-old constable committed suicide by shooting himself with his service rifle on Friday. The reason behind taking this extreme step is not yet known.

The constable Sandeep Thakur, a resident of village Gadadeh under Utai police station, was posted in Rajnandgaon. Sandeep was suffering from prolonged illness and lost his mother, a nurse by profession, a month ago. Sandeep has three sisters, one of them is married. Sandeep was the only earning member of the family after his mother died. Sandeep returned to work from 40 days long holiday on Friday and was very disturbed. He straightway went to his quarter and even not bothered to register his attendance.

Around 7 to 8 pm, the constables on duty heard the sound of rifle shooting and rushed towards the quarter and were shocked to see the constable lying in pool of blood. The constable Sandeep was rushed to the nearest community health centre but the doctors declared him brought dead.
