BHOPAL: An inspector of Madhya Pradesh police allegedly shot self to death with his service pistol at his rented house in Raisen district (100 km from Bhopal) on Thursday.

The 45-year-old Sanjay Dube, presently posted as the inspector-in-charge of Gairatganj police station shot self to death from point-blank range with service pistol at the house where he lived with his wife Seema and two children.

According to Raisen district superintendent of police JS Rajput, Inspector Dube, "who was one of the best inspectors in Raisen police shot self in the head while wife Seema was offering daily prayers in the other room of the rented house at around 10.30 am."

Hearing the gunshot, Seema rushed to Dube's room and found her profusely bleeding cop husband on the floor.

Dube was first rushed to the Gairatganj hospital from where doctors referred him to Raisen district hospital. At the Raisen district hospital, doctors declared Dube brought dead on arrival.

"As no suicide note has been found from the spot, the reasons behind the extreme step by the inspector couldn't be ascertained," said Rajput.

Sources at Gairatganj police station, however, confided that Dube was in a depression right since he returned from leave after meeting parents in native district Bhadohi in East UP recently.

Incidentally, Sanjay Dube was part of the Raisen police team which had arrested on Wednesday a dreaded criminal Govind, who had escaped from police custody a few weeks back in Raisen district.
