A Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) jawan allegedly committed suicide at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru on Monday around 9 am.
Sources from the Bengaluru International Airport Police Station confirmed the incident to International Business Times India.
Suresh Gaikwad, the 28-year-old deceased jawan, shot himself with his service rifle while he was on duty at the airport, Dr. Harsha, IPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) North-East Division, told IBTimes India over phone. He added that Gaikwad shot himself "near the observation post of the airport's perimeter wall."
According to the DCP, the jawan was "going through a rough patch in his life. He got divorced a couple of weeks ago and was really depressed."
A case has been registered at the police station under unnatural death. The police is still investigating the matter.
No suicide note was found with the jawan. The service rifle, with which he shot himself, has been recovered, the DCP further added.
On January 12, a CISF jawan in Bihar's Aurangabad district had fired at four of his fellow colleagues killing all of them.
