Police inspector commits suicide

A police inspector, who had allegedly consumed pesticides to commit suicide about a week ago, died at MKCG Medical College and Hospital, the police said on Thursday.

Rajendra Panda, inspector of the district crime record bureau wing in Ganjam district, was admitted to the hospital on November 6 in a serious condition and he passed away yesterday, they said.

Panda died during treatment and his body was handed over to his family after a postmortem, sub-divisional police officer, Berhampur, B K Panigrahi, said.

The reason behind the extreme step taken by the inspector was yet to be ascertained, the police said.

Panda was deputed to Aska police station about a month ago as an additional inspector. He, however, did not join there and was on a sick leave, the police said.
