BHUBANESWAR: A 45-year-old security guard allegedly shot himself with his service gun over a family dispute at his residence in Ganganagar in the city on Monday. Although he was rushed to a hospital, doctors declared him dead.
Police said the deceased was a native of Nayagarh district’s Baunsia village and working with a private security agency in Bhubaneswar. Initial investigation suggests that the man returned home in an inebriated state at 11 pm on Monday and had a tussle with his wife.

A gun was seized from the spot and a case of unnatural death registered. The man is survived by his wife, a 14-year-old daughter and one 10-year-old son.
