Hyderabad: A 57-year-old head constable allegedly committed suicide on Wednesday by shooting himself at a police station in Nizamabad District in Telangana.
Prakash Reddy, posted at the Indalwai Police Station as in-charge of the safe custody of weapons, came to the station at 7.30 am and took a pistol from the armoury. After about half-an hour later, he shot himself in the head at point blank range, police said.
Hearing the noise, other personnel on duty rushed and shifted the head constable to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead, a senior police official told PTI.
Reddy, due to retire next year, was apparently under depression "may be due to some personal reasons".
Further probe is underway.
