After Uttar Pradesh police officer Rajesh Sahani allegedly shot himself with his service revolver in Lucknow Tuesday, his friends and family have demanded a CBI probe into his death, refuting claims that he committed suicide.
Reports said Sahani, a 1992-batch UP Provincial Police Service officer, shot himself at the Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) headquarters, Gomtinagar.
His cousin Manoj said Sahani "would never ever commit suicide".
Days before, former Mumbai top cop had killed himself
Sahani's suicide comes days after former Maharashtra ATS chief Himanshu Roy took his life in a similar fashion. Though Roy was battling depression, the reason behind Sahani's alleged suicide is yet to be ascertained. His family is yet to come to terms with the death.
