BHOPAL: With only a year left for his superannuation, a sub-inspector of Madhya Pradesh police jumped before a train in Jabalpur district in the early hours of Wednesday.
The cop identified as Khel Singh Thakur (59) jumped before a speeding train near Khajuri railway crossing in Gohalpur area of Jabalpur (350 km from Bhopal). The matter came to light when local residents spotted his body on rail tracks at around 7.30 am and reported the matter local police.
A suicide note purportedly written by Thakur was found from his wallet. According to Jabalpur superintendent of police, Thakur was posted at Gohalpur police station of Jabalpur and had one more year of his job left.
"The suicide note seized from Thakur's wallet mentions about Thakur treating self too old and mentally and physically not capable of doing the cop's job," said Sikarwar.
The Jabalpur SP, however, denied that work pressure had triggered the extreme step taken by the sub-inspector, whose daughter was to be married within a few weeks.
"There could be some family problems also which could have had a toll on Thakur's psyche. Investigations are underway in the matter," said Sikarwar.
