New Delhi: A 36-year-old Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable allegedly shot himself dead using his service rifle at the Nagloi Metro Station in the national capital on Thursday morning, officials said. The incident took place at around 6:40 am.

Police said that Sahare Kishore Samrao was discovered with a gunshot wound to his forehead, indicating that he allegedly died by suicide. His body was recovered from near the X-ray baggage scanner.

The individual who passed away had been serving as a constable (GD) in the CISF since 2014 and had been stationed in Delhi since January 2022.

Officials said that Nangloi Metro Police Station received a call at 7:03 am about the incident. Following the information, a team of police reached the spot, and the body was later sent for a post-mortem examination. "He (the deceased constable) was found dead at the X-ray machine scanner, committing suicide by gunshot on his forehead.

The deceased hails from Gadchiroli district in Maharashtra and lived with his family in Delhi's Narela area, they said. "The constable's family members residing at Narela government quarters have also been informed. And we are further looking into the incident," they added.
