A Rajasthan Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) officer has allegedly killed a woman before shooting himself with his service revolver in a car in Jaipur’s Jagatpura area on Thursday evening. According to a Hindustan Times report, the officer left behind a two-page suicide note in which he apologised to his wife for having chosen ‘the wrong path’ while claiming that the woman was ‘blackmailing’ him.

Ashish Prabhakar, who was an additional superintendent of police, and the unidentified woman were found inside a locked car with bullet injuries on their foreheads. The officer, reportedly, had notified the police control room to keep a check on a suspicious SUV at the incident spot before allegedly committing suicide.

In his suicide note, Prabhakar had alleged that he was being harassed by some people while mentioning a few contact numbers and Facebook profiles. The bodies were subsequently taken for post-mortem after forensic experts conducted investigations into the incident. According to preliminary investigation, both had a heated argument before the incident.

Prabhakar had played a pivotal role in the arrest of Mohammad Sirajuddhin, who was seen as an IS sympathi”ser. He had joined field duties at the Rajasthan Police Academy recently.

    Bhagwan bhi to saza dega na jo fake encounter karte hain. Dalit, musalman, Adivasi ka hi fake encounter hota hai. Upper caste to bas baith ke karwate hain. Bhagwan ke ghar der hai andher nhi.

        Govt and other forces should investigate such cases as ISI and some militant organisations may be targeting such officials. Open eyes. Act smart dont take such cases as normal case.

          Those who fight against terrorists and corrupt people should borne in their minds that they are prone to every type of temptations. If they are unable to withstand temptations, they will fail in their missions half way done. Only self determined and having extraordinary wit to outsmart criminals can survive. They can not have the same protection after retirement except few is another issue. Public may not remember his service for a long time.

            An efficient police officer trapped by anti-national elements and met his tragic end. RIP. The officials need to remain vigilant, always.
