After ruling out any foul play in the death of IPS officer Rahul Sharma, 37, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is now focusing on the circumstances that forced the 2002-batch Chhattisgarh cadre officer to commit suicide.

Sharma's family had demanded a CBI probe claiming that he was a victim of the system. Sharma, Bilaspur superintendent of police, allegedly shot himself in the head with his service weapon on March 12 inside the toilet of police officer's mess in Bilaspaur.

"Sharma had left a suicide note which the handwriting experts have found to be true. In the note, he had alleged highhandedness of his senior and a judicial officer. The probe has not found anything that suggests Sharma was singled out for any perceived highhandedness," said a CBI officer.
