“It appears he shot himself with his service revolver. We have started an investigation to find the cause leading to the death,” the official said.

He had joined the police station a few days ago, the official added.

The official further added that the policeman left no suicide note, so the colleagues could not throw any light on why he shot himself.

“His family has been informed and the body has been sent for post mortem,” the official added.
