- Virendra Rose said he was upset over unfair decision by police higher-ups
- He first tried to hang himself from the ceiling fan
- Mr Rose shot himself with his service revolver says Inspector Rambir
52-year-old ASI, Virender, was posted at Murthal in Sonipat over 9 months ago, Station House Officer, Police Station Murthal, Inspector Rambir said.
"It appears that the ASI first tried to hang himself from the ceiling fan, but when he failed in that attempt he shot himself with his service revolver. We found him in a hanging position with a bullet having pierced his chest," Inspector Rambir said.
The Inspector said that he had heard the gunshot when he was in an another room of the police station and had initially taken it to be a tyre-burst.
"He had come to the office to hand over the charge after he was recently transferred to the police lines," he said.
The SHO said that Sub-Inspector Virender had registered a cross case last month against members of two groups who had entered into a dispute.
However, Virender was sent to police lines a few days later and he has mentioned in his post that was not a fair decision taken by the police higher-ups due to which he was upset.
"We have registered a case of suicide and further investigations were being conducted," Inspector Rambir said.
