An assistant sub-inspector (ASI), posted at a checkpost on the Punjab-Haryana border at Kadail, died from bullet injuries caused by his service weapon on Wednesday. After a post-mortem examination, the body was handed over to the family. The police have initiated an investigation.

The deceased ASI, Krishan Dev, had gone to a washroom located near the police checkpost around 8 am and was found lying in a pool of blood minutes later.

"Our personnel heard gunshots and they ran towards the washroom where ASI Krishan Dev was found lying in a pool of blood with a bullet injury on the neck. He died on the spot. A total of five bullets were fired from his weapon. It seems to be a case of accidental firing, but we are conducting a detailed investigation," said Moonak DSP Buta Singh Gill.

Sangrur SSP Dr Sandeep Garg said, "We have been conducting a detailed investigation to ascertain whether it was an accidental firing or a suicide. Our officers are talking to the family to know whether the deceased had any family problem."
