An additional superintendent of police (ASP) of the anti-terrorist squad (ATS) in Rajasthan has allegedly committed suicide after killing a woman. Before killing himself from his service revolver, Ashish Prabhakar also allegedly shot dead a woman in his car. The bodies were recovered from his car last night in Shivdaspura area in Rajasthan, police said.
The sources said Prabhakar had left a two-page suicide note in which he apologised to his wife for having chosen "the wrong path”. Without naming Poonam, he said she was "blackmailing” him.
Prabhakar also mentioned a few mobile numbers and Facebook profiles in the note, alleging some people were harassing him, the sources said without revealing much.
He had also made a call to the police control room, saying two bodies were lying in a car, before taking the extreme step.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Prabhakar might have had a heated exchange with the woman, following which he pulled out the service revolver and opened fire. Two bullet marks were found on the car gate mirror and one on the roof.
Ashish Prabhakar was known as a shy yet honest and devoted police officer by fellow police officers.However, some months ago, he had suddenly gone missing while he returning from a training camp. "He was supposed to reach home at 2.30pm. However, when he did not reach home, his family members had asked Jaipur police to enquire about him," said a senior officer.
