Tura, Oct. 12: A constable of the 120 battalion of the CRPF shot himself with his service revolver last evening, leading to his death around 10.30pm at Dakopgre locality here last night.

The 34-year-old from Lianzagin village under Churachandrapur district of Manipur,T. Chinza Kam, was declared brought dead after the incident. His body is now at Tura civil hospital for post-mortem.

The superintendent of police, West Garo Hills, Raghuvendar Kumar, said the constable had competed his duty for the night and was returning to his quarters when he allegedly shot himself.

The reason for the extreme step is yet to be ascertained.

"He was still alive when he was found though he died on the way to the hospital. Prima facie it seems to be a case of suicide though we are looking at all angles to the case," Kumar added.
