Surendra Kumar Das, an IPS officer from Kanpur, is said to be in a critical condition after he was found unconscious on Wednesday, September 5. He was rushed to the Regency Hospital in Kanpur and is now admitted to the ICU. 

The police claim that he may have allegedly consumed poison in an attempt to commit suicide. The Deputy Inspector General (Law & Order) Praveen Kumar said that further details will come to light only after the hospital releases an official statement.

"We have got this information that Das is admitted to a hospital. However, we are not able to comment anything on this as we don't know if it is poison or anything else. Wait for the hospital report to come. The hospital might release a bulletin and only after that we would know what exactly has happened to Das," Praveen was quoted as saying by Indian Express.

Police officers Avinash Chandra and Alok Singh from the Kanpur zone are currently at the hospital, Hindustan Times reported.
