Koraput: A District Voluntary Force (DVF) constable shot himself after gunning down five persons including four of his close relatives at the Mining Colony here in Koraput district in Odisha on Tuesday morning.

“Narendra committed suicide by shooting himself after gunning down his relatives by his service revolver,” said Inspector General of Police (south-western range) Yashwant Jethwa, adding that the incident could be the fallout of a family dispute.

Meanwhile, police intensified the investigation to ascertain the exact reason. 

Sources said that, Narendra had a dispute with his wife Jyotrimayee. On Monday, he attacked his wife with an iron rod causing injury in her leg. With fear she informed her parents who reside at Kakiriguma to come to her house to reconcile the couple.
