In a shocking incident, bodies of a top Rajasthan Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) officer and a woman were found dead inside a car near Jaipur on Thursday.
Police found the dead bodies of Additional SP Ashish Prabhakar and a woman inside an SUV parked on the Mahal road at Shivdaspura, some 30 km from the state capital. The woman is yet to be identified.
ATS-SOG Additional DG Umesh Mishra said that both were killed by gunshots fired from Prabhakar’s service revolver which was found beside the bodies.
The police control room received a call from Prabhakar’s mobile phone at around 7pm informing that a woman was lying dead inside a car. The call was reportedly made by a passerby who spotted the car after hearing gunshots.
When the police team reached the spot, it found Prabhakar’s body on the driver seat of the SUV and the woman was found lying his lap. They also found some empty beer cans.
India Today cited DCP Manish Aggarwal who told that when the police team reached the spot, the car was locked from inside.
“Two bullets were fired from Ashish's service revolver. The police is exploring multiple angles, including that of suicide. Their phone call details are also being examined,” India Today quoted Aggarwal as saying.
It is reported that Prabhakar ran a civil services coaching institute and the woman was a student there. He was married and had recently resumed duty in the ATS after a long study leave.
