On Wednesday, a police policeman attached to the security squad at cricketer Sachin Tendulkar's Mumbai home allegedly committed suicide in Maharashtra's Jalgaon district.


According to an official statement, Prakash Govind Kapade, a 39-year-old member of the State Reserve Police Force (SRPF), shot himself in the head with his service handgun in the early morning, reported PTI. 


According to the report, Kapade, who had returned to his birthplace of Jamner with his family last week, was discovered by family members after hearing a gunshot. Despite being transported to the hospital, he was pronounced dead on arrival.


A police squad from Jamner arrived at the location, but no suicide note was discovered, the report further stated. 

Per the PTI report, Kapade has been in the SRPF for 15 years and is currently assigned to the Maharashtra Police's Special Protection Unit (SPU). He was earlier stationed at Sachin Tendulkar's home in Bandra. The motivation for the suicide is still being investigated.

In another unrelated incident, two brothers from Bhayandar, Thane district, Maharashtra, were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly beating and threatening a police sub-inspector (PSI). The event occurred late on May 13, when a guy went to the Bhayandar police station to report an attack. The PSI assisted the victim and transported him to a medical facility.

After asking his subordinates to transport the accused to the station, the siblings verbally insulted the police officer. They physically abused him by tugging his collar and making threats of retaliation, the PTI report added.

According to the report, fellow officers intervened and restrained the brothers, who were then brought into prison.

Based on the PSI's complaint, a case has been filed under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code, including impeding a public official, inflicting harm, criminal intimidation, and malicious insult, the report added. 

According to the PTI report, the case against them has been booked under Sections 186 (voluntarily obstructing any public servant in the discharge of his public functions), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to a public servant), 353 (use of criminal force to deter a public servant from performing their duty), 504 (intentionally insult) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.
