CRPF jawan arrives home, found dead days later; father blames wife – india news
A jawan from the Central Reserve Police Force, on leave from work, reportedly died by suicide on Thursday, days after returning home to Bihar’s Aurangabad district. He was 31 years old.
Police have not found a suicide note at the home.
The jawan, Kshatramani alias Gunjan, was stationed in Odisha and had returned home from leave for a month on December 19.
According to police, the Jawan had dinner with his family on Wednesday. When his wife woke up around 5:30 a.m. the next day, police said, they found that the door to the room was locked from the outside. He tried calling Gunjan, but got no answer. After this, he raised the alarm, said SHO Arvind Kumar Gautam from the Daudnagar police station.
A neighbor ran to the jawan’s house upon hearing the wife’s cry for help. When he broke down the front door, he found Gunjan’s lifeless body. He took the jawan to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The jawan’s father, Ashok Singh, has told police that his son took the extreme step due to the constant fighting and torture of his wife, Anita Devi.
In a written statement, Singh alleged that a fight between the wife and the husband around 12:30 pm (Wednesday) led to suicide.
“Prima facie, it appears that Gunjan took his own life. While the police are investigating the complaint made by the father of the deceased, ”said the SHO.
