Kanker: A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan was found dead with a bullet wound to the head in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker district on June 21, with police suspecting that he died by suicide.

Head Constable Madan Kumar from BSF’s 94th battalion went missing on Thursday when a team of his unit was out on a Road Security Operation (RSO) in Chhote Bethiya area, a senior police official said.

Kumar was posted at Marbeda BSF camp located under Bande police station area.

The RSO was launched between Marbeda and Chhote Bethiya and Kumar was found missing after the patrolling team returned to its base, he said.

During a search, security personnel found Kumar’s body with a bullet injury on the head in a forest on Friday morning. His service rifle was also recovered, he said.

“Prima facie it seems to be a case of suicide but more details would be known after investigation,” he said.

The body has been sent for post-mortem to Pakhanjore and further probe is underway, he said.

The BSF is extensively deployed in the Kanker district for anti-Naxalite operations.
