JAIPUR: Dausa police has launched an investigation into the death of one of its head constables who committed suicide in Sainthal police station’s family quarters on Friday night.
His body was handed over to his family after autopsy on Saturday morning. Police have not found any reason yet to suggest why the cop took his own life. In preliminary questioning, his family has been unable to give clues to police. This is second suicide by a policeman in Rajasthan in just a week’s time. The deceased head constable was identified as 43-year-old Giriraj Bairwa whose body was found around 8pm on Friday.
Anil Chauhan, additional SP Dausa, told TOI, “The reason behind the suicide is unclear as there was no suicide note, but it does not appear to be due to a professional reason. We are looking at all possible angles and there are high chances that Giriraj took his own life due to personal reasons though we have not found any concrete evidence till now.”
The deceased policeman was cremated at his village in Alwar and is survived by wife as well as five children.
“We have requested that SDM Dausa must conduct a separate investigation into the suicide as it is a serious matter that a cop killed himself,” added Chauhan
This suicide comes just a week after Bishnoi killed himself on May 23 at his residence in Rajgarh. Cops found two suicide notes, but they did not specify any reason for the SHO’s death. Officials also started an investigation spearheaded by state crime branch and will initiate a judicial enquiry as requested by the family. The matter also raised questions about the internal politics which had been apparently plaguing Bishnoi which he had mentioned to his friend. The locals as well as politicians had staged a protest and cops lodged an FIR against a few of them. With many speculations floating around, the crime branch team claimed that they are yet to find any foolproof reason behind the suicide.
