Raipur: A jail guard allegedly shot dead a
constable and later committed suicide on Wednesday in Chhattisgarh`s
Rajnandgaon district, police said.

Ramnaresh Thakur, posted at Rajnandgaon district prison,
was reprimanded by constable Iqbal Hussain and sent back home
after he allegedly turned up drunk for work last night,
Durg region Inspector General R K Vij said.

Apparently furious with this, Thakur returned drunk to
the jail premises this morning and shot dead Hussain, who was
sleeping, he said.

Later, he came out of the barrack and fatally shot
himself, Vij said.

A probe has been ordered into the incident, police said.
