A police inspector allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at the police training centre in Maharashtra’s Dhule district, an official said on Wednesday.
The dead, identified as Praveen Vishwanath Kadam, purportedly left a note before the incident on Tuesday in which he mentioned that no one should be held responsible for his extreme step, he said.
A convocation function has been organised at the police training centre on November 21. Mr Kadam had taken part its preparation on Tuesday afternoon, the official said.
He was posted at the police training centre in Dhule since 2019 after he came from Pune.
When some of his colleagues found the door of his room locked on Tuesday evening, they knocked at it. As there was no response from inside, they peeped through a window and found him hanging, the official said.
They immediately alerted inspector Nitin Deshmukh at the city police station.
A police team then rushed to the spot.
They found a note in the room, purportedly written by Mr Kadam, in which he mentioned that no one should be blamed for his death, the official said.
His family members, who live in Nashik, have been informed about the incident, the police said.
An accidental death report has been registered in the incident, they added.
