Even though 24 hours have passed since the 19-year-old engineering student Sameer Kamble shot himself dead with his father's service revolver, the police failed to smoke out the reasons for the extreme step taken by him. However, the police said on Saturday his family members were in a state of shock, so they could not be quizzed in detail.
Son of Rajesh Kamble, a sub-inspector with the Anti-terrorist Squad (ATS), Sameer, a first year student of a private engineering college, shot himself in the head at his Tulsi Nagar residence on Friday morning and was rushed to a nearby hospital.
Initially, the doctors declared him 'brain dead' and kept on life-support system but later in the night they declared him 'dead'.
His last rites were performed on Saturday, family sources said.
In fact, the family members were also clueless about the reasons that forced Sameer to take such an extreme step, the police further said.
The cops further said four days ago, he celebrated his birthday.
Similarly, the family members of Sameer said he behaved normally till Friday morning and had a conversation with his father.
Also, Sameer went to the gate of his residence to see off his mother, a schoolteacher, who had left for her place of work.
During preliminary investigation, it came to light that Sameer was not attending the college for sometimes.
Also, he did not take practical examinations but the family members had no idea about it, the police said.
The police said an investigation into the case was on to ascertain the circumstances that forced him to end his life.
