Police say that a police officer killed himself while on duty in a bathroom at a police checkpoint in Banani in the city.

Ashrafuzzaman Roni, who was a police officer, was found dead. He worked for the ASTF Company in the Public Order Management (POM) South Division. He lived in Mirpur Police Lines before.

Since the morning, he had been working at the Banani 11 police checkpoint.

The police said that he killed himself by shooting himself in the chest with the gun that was given to him.

As soon as Roni went into the bathroom at the checkpoint, his friends heard a gunshot.

When they opened the door, Roni was laying on the floor, covered in blood.

Roni was brought to the emergency room of Dhaka Medical College (DMCH) Hospital around 8 a.m., where he was in a very bad way. The duty doctor examined him and pronounced him dead.

Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Banani police station Md Mostafizur Rahman said that Roni, a constable, killed himself by shooting himself in the chest with the gun he was given around 6:50 a.m. when he went to the bathroom at Banani check post no. 11.

But no one knows for sure why he killed himself yet.

Ashrafuzzaman Roni lived in the village of Chandrapara in the upazila of Dhamrai in the district of Dhaka until he died.

In 2020, he became a constable in the police force.
