The police have identified the deceased as CISF constable Suresh Gaikwad (28), a native of Maharashtra, committed suicide by killing himself with his service rifle at 9 am, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru North East Dr P S Harsha said.
Harsha said a family dispute was the prima facie reason for the alleged suicide. “He was undergoing the pain of divorce, and hence he took this extreme step,” he said.
Forensic and explosive experts rushed to the spot and are investigating, Harsha said.
