Soldier commits suicide at PRTC

A 20-year-old sepoy committed suicide by hanging from a tree at the Parachute Regiment Training Centre (PRTC) in J C Nagar on Thursday.

The deceased, Khanta Bhupendhar, was a native of Gujarat and got selected as a sepoy after physical fitness test and was undergoing training at the PRTC, the police said.

According to the police, the incident came to light when Bhupendhar did not present himself for the roll call parade in the morning.

A group of sepoys, who were asked to search for him, spotted him hanging from the tree inside the training premise.

There was no suicide note at his barrack or with him.

The police are analysing his mobile phone call records.

His colleagues did not observe anything abnormal with him either. The JC Nagar police have registered a case of unnatural death and are investigating further.
