A BSF jawan allegedly committed suicide by firing from his service gun in Koraput’s Boipariguda on Saturday. He has been identified as Lukeswar Singh (41) from Punjab’s Gurudaspur. Police said the incident took place around 10.50 am at the camp of 105 Battalion of the BSF. The deceased jawan was on sentry duty at the BSF camp and carrying a light machine gun (LMG).
“The jawan has fired from his gun and died instantly as the bullet pierced his head. The reason behind the suicide is yet to be ascertained. The postmortem was done at Boipariguda hospital and his body will be sent home,” said SP (Koraput) Awinash Kumar.
After preliminary inquiry the SP said, “A few minutes before committing suicide, the jawan had spoken to his family over telephone and was upset. Though not sure, we suspect some domestic problem behind the crime and are trying to establish contact with his family. A case has been registered and investigation is on. The reason behind the suicide will be known once we complete our enquiry.”
