Judicial probe begins into suicide by ASI

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, August 14

A day after ASI Avtar Singh committed suicide, a judicial probe was initiated into the case and the post-mortem conducted today afternoon.

The autopsy was conducted in the presence of the judicial magistrate at Guru Nanak Dev Hospital. Special Task Force (STF) officials and Singh’s family members were also present but refused to comment.

Jagjit Singh, SHO, Mohkampura police station, said: “The post-mortem has been conducted and a judicial probe started in the case.”

Police officials said Singh had used an AK-47 assault rifle and fired five shots — two bullets had crossed through his head, while the other three were shot into the air. He had died on the spot.

Sources said Singh used to serve as a basketball coach at DAV police public school and had a good reputation. Two years ago, he was posted at the Raya police station but shifted to Gharinda six months ago. He reportedly started consuming drugs at Gharinda. The family is tightlipped about the case. One of Singh’s sons is studying abroad and cremation would be held after his arrival.

Singh was nabbed for drug peddling by the STF on Monday. He was arrested along with another ASI, Jorawar Singh, while allegedly consuming heroin at Attari.
