A jawan posted inside a camp in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district committed suicide by shooting himself under suspicious circumstances. Confirming this, the police officer said that the cause of death is yet to be ascertained. At present, a case has been registered, and an investigation is going on. At the same time, after getting the post-mortem done, the jawan’s body has been handed over to the army.
According to the information received from the police, this matter is on Monday morning. Havildar Shinde Sandeep Arjun, posted at Drangyari Chowkibal Post in Kupwara, shot himself with his service rifle. At first, there was an atmosphere of panic in the camp after hearing the sound of bullets.
On hearing the sound of gunshots around 4.30 AM, the soldiers first thought that a terrorist attack had taken place. So the soldiers on duty became alert while the soldiers resting in the camps immediately reached the post. But when there was no firing again for a long time, the jawans ran to the side from where the sound of gunfire had come.
The jawans saw Havaldar Shinde lying on the ground covered in blood. The jawans immediately picked him up and took him to the Military Hospital in Srinagar in no time. But, unfortunately, doctors said that the jawan died during treatment.
While confirming that the 38-year-old Army jawan had committed suicide, a police official said that it is unknown why the jawan took this step. However, he said a case had been registered, and further investigation is on. In this regard, his fellow soldiers will also be questioned. At present, the jawan’s body has been handed over to the battalion after conducting the post-mortem.
