Kundapur, May 29, 2020: A Reserve Sub-Inspector (RSI) of the KSRP who was on security duty at the Amasebail Police Station located in a Naxal hit area, has reportedly committed suicide. His body was found hanging from a tree near the station on May 29, Friday morning.
The deceased is Mallikarjun Gubbi (56) hailing from Nauraganj in Kalaburagi. He had joined duty at Amasebail on May 15.
Mallikarjun who had gone to bed as usual in his quarters on Thursday night was not to be found this morning. His colleagues began to search for him when a local resident who was on way to the milk dairy saw the body of the RSI hanging from the tree and informed the police.
As cops are deployed on rotation basis for security duty at Amasebail, Mallikarjun was supposed to return to Munirabad where he is originally posted, on Saturday.
The reason behind his suicide is not known. The police officer has left behind his wife and two children.
