33-year-old Arvind, who was associated with the 40 Battalion, hailed from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu district.

The initial inquiry suggested some marital problems, which forced the CRPF officer to take such an extreme step.

His mortal remains are being sent to his hometown today.

CRPF also categorically rejected reports in social media attributing the incident due to bad living conditions, dubbing it as ''untrue''.

Meanwhile, a probe has been ordered into the incident.
