Barasat: A sub-inspector of police attached to Jagaddal police station in North 24-Parganas has been found dead in his quarter.

Deceased police officer Arindam Kundu had performed Panchayat poll duty yesterday and returned to his quarter, located on Jagaddal police station premises, late in the evening. He was spotted hanging from the ceiling of his quarter around midnight by other policemen living in the vicinity.

Police sources have claimed that Kundu was into a discord with wife and has probably committed suicide because of this. His extended family members and relatives, however, are suspecting foul play in his death and have demanded a thorough probe.

Kundu is survived by wife and two children who live separately at Dum Dum. Police have sent Kundu’s dead body to Barrackpore for post-mortem.
