BSF jawan commits suicide in Sitalkuchi!

A BSF jawan has committed suicide in Cooch Behar’s Sitalkuchi.

The soldier committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest from the service revolver. It is known that the name of the dead jawan is NN Swamy. His home is in Andhra Pradesh. He lived in a camp at Gadopota on India-Bangladesh border in Shitalkuchi block of Cooch Behar.

In the early hours of Friday morning, Police and other jawans heard the sound of gunshots in the camp. He came out and found NN Swamy lying in a bloody state. Colleagues rescued him and took him to Sitalkuchi Block Primary Health Centre. There the doctors declared him dead.

An investigation into the incident has started. But the question has arisen as to why the jawan did this. It is being investigated whether there is a family disturbance behind the incident. The fellow jawans claimed that there was no problem at work. Meanwhile, the jawan’s body has been sent for post-mortem.
