A Border Security Force (BSF) sub-inspector allegedly shot himself dead at a post along the India-Pakistan international border on Monday.
Ramdev Singh was found lying in a pool of blood and his personal assault weapon was found by his side when a junior-rank trooper reached his room at around 6:35 am.
He belonged to the 12th battalion and was commanding a platoon of the BSF. He is suspected to have shot himself dead from his service weapon, officials said.
Police and a BSF court of inquiry are being conducted to ascertain the cause of the death, they said.
Singh hailed from Rajasthan’s Sikar district. (PTI)
