A trainee CRPF officer on Wednesday allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at the training centre of the force in Gurgaon.
Officials said the incident occurred at about 4 AM when the body of trainee officer identified as M M Mullah (31) was found hanging in his hostel room at the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) training academy in Kadarpur.
They said Mullah, who hailed from Karnataka’s Belgaum, had joined the force as a direct entry officer in the rank of Assistant Commandant (AC) in September last year.
He was part of the 47th AC course. The UPSC conducts an all-India exam for recruiting officers in paramilitary forces like CRPF every year.
“The exact cause of Mullah taking the extreme step is being ascertained. His batchmates are being questioned,” a senior official said.
Local police officials and senior CRPF officers reached the spot and a Court of Inquiry has been ordered into the incident by the paramilitary, they said.
