NEW DELHI: A cop posted with the CRPF was shot dead by his junior colleague who then shot himself dead inside a government bunglow in Lodhi Estate area on Friday night. Prima facie probe suggests that the two cops had an argument over something during which one of them pulled out his service weapon and opened fire.
The police were informed about a firing at the house number 61 in Lodhi Estate area after which a police team from the Tughlaq Road police station reached the scene and found the two cops, inspector Karnal Singh and sub-inspector Dasrath Singh, lying in a pool of blood. They were taken to a hospital where they were declared dead on arrival.
One of their service weapon also recovered from the spot. Police say that the two cops were deployed on security duty in the area.
Efforts are being made to find out the reason behind the argument due to which the sub inspector had taken the extreme step.
