A 47-year Delhi Police constable committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan at his residence at Metro apartments in Northwest Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area on Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as Kamal Kumar. Kumar was part of the Delhi Police Band, and was posted at the Police Training College at Jharoda Kalan.

According to the police, the incident was reported at around 12 noon when Kamal was found hanging in his room by his family members.

His family informed the police after which Kamal’s body was taken to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead.

Suicide note
No suicide note has been recovered from Kamal’s possession as yet, the police said. “Kamal was posted at the Police Training College at Jharoda Kalan. He was also a part of the Delhi Police band,” said a police officer.

An inquiry under Section174 of CrPC of Inquest proceedings has been initiated into the matter.
