BHOPAL: A 59-year-old officer of Madhya Pradesh police allegedly shot self to death with his service pistol in Morena district on Sunday. 

The officer Hemant Sisodiya, posted as sub-divisional officer of police (SDOP-Sabalgarh) in Morena district committed suicide at his official residence.

With no suicide note recovered from the spot,  the reasons behind the extreme step are yet to be ascertained, the Morena district superintendent of police Aditya Pratap Singh said. 

Sisodiya, who hailed from Guna lived alone at his official residence in Morena district, while his family resided in hometown Guna. 

The SDOP was very amiable and was slated to retire next year,  owing to which he had sought transfer to hometown Guna, which was already sanctioned to him. 

The SP Morena Aditya Pratap Singh said while actual trigger of the suicide isn't known, the possibility of the suicide having been prompted by some family dispute cannot be ruled out. 

On Sunday after Sisodiya returned from office to official residence for lunch, he asked the driver and gunner to leave for lunch. 

Just a short while later the SDOP sat on his bed and shot self to death from point-blank range in the head from service pistol. 

The official residence of Sisodia has been sealed and forensic teams have collected samples for Investigation.
