Homesick CRPF constable shoots himself in Jawaharnagar

Hyderabad: Upset over alleged personal issues, a CRPF constable allegedly committed suicide at Jawahar nagar in the city on Sunday. Baban Vithal Rao Manwar was found with bullet injuries in his neck and skull. Police suspect that he shot himself and committed suicide from his service weapon.

According to police, 40-year-old Baban Vithal Rao Manwar hailing from Pawan Nagar village in Nagpur district of Maharashtra, joined CRPF as a constable in 2004. He reported to the CRPF Ranga Reddy Group Center at Jawahar Nagar on November 11, 2019.

Since then, he was upset with the feeling of homesickness, as his wife and children were residing in their home in Maharashtra. Every day he would call them over the phone and express how he was away from them all and that they should be happy. He also frequently told his wife Archana to take good care of their children and parents.

On Saturday afternoon too, he spoke to his wife for around ten minutes and spoke regular things, that he was away from all of them, missing them and that they should take care of the family members.

On Saturday night, he was posted on guard duty at the sentry post of the campus located near the CRPF school. At 2.03 am, his colleagues heard bullet sounds. When they searched, they found Vithal Rao in a pool of blood. They shifted him to the medical facility, but he was declared dead. Based on a complaint from the Group center Deputy Commandant B Rathnamma, Jawahar Nagar police registered a case of suspicious death and started investigation.
