“The bullet hit his head leading to his death immediately. The constable either has committed suicide or has shot the bullet by mistake. Further investigation is underway,” said superintendent of police (SP) Paris Deshmukh.

Police said that Dhaka, who served over 15 years in the police, was posted in Ramgarh for the last four years.

“On Wednesday early morning, another constable sitting at the gate of the police station heard a bullet sound from inside. He immediately rushed at the office and found the constable (Dhaka) lying dead on the floor,” SP Deshmukh said.

No suicide was also found on him, said police. “Dhaka has a wife and two children in his family. The body was sent for an autopsy. Police are probing the matter,” the SP said.
