In a suspected case of suicide, a 36-year-old police constable attached to the Kondhwa division of the Pune traffic control branch was found hanging from the ceiling in his house on Saturday night.
The deceased has been identified as Rajesh Ganesh Malshekar, who lived alone in his house in Fursungi.
The incident came light when a neighbour of Malshekar went to his house to tell him about a flowing tap in his house on Saturday night around 10 pm.
The door had to be broken open after there was no response in spite of repeated calling.
He was found hanging from the ceiling with a dupatta.
Police said it was suspected to be a case of suicide and that the incident might be a fallout of a family issue.
Malshekar is survived by his wife and son, who live at his native village.
