CISF Jawan commits suicide at Bengaluru Airport

A Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) jawan today allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself with his service rifle at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru.

"CISF constable Suresh Gaikwad (28), a native of Maharashtra, committed suicide by shooting himself with his service rifle at 9 AM, DCP North East," PTI quoted Dr P S Harsha as saying.

According to Harsha, the family dispute was the “prima facie reason” for the alleged suicide. “He was undergoing the pain of divorce, and hence he took this extreme step,” he said. Forensic and explosive experts rushed to the spot and are investigating, Harsha added.


The incident took place just days after a CISF jawan shot dead his four senior colleagues with his service rifle in a fit of rage following a heated argument over leave issues in Bihar's Naxal-hit Aurangabad district, officials said. The fragging incident was reported around 12:45 AM at the Nabinagar Power Generation Company Ltd (NPGCL) unit which is guarded by the force.
