A 59-year-old police inspector was found dead at the Gulabi Bagh police station in north Delhi on Friday morning.
Station house inspector (SHO) Ram Chandra Ranga, who had turned 59 on Friday, was found bleeding from his nose in his restroom. His medical records said he was suffering from diabetes and heart ailment and was on medication.
Prior to Gulabi Bagh, he was posted at the Khajuri Khas police station. “He had sought a transfer to get his daughter married. He had told his seniors that because of his posting in East Delhi, he was not being able to find a good match for his daughter,” said a police officer.
Ranga joined the Delhi Police as a head constable in 1970 and was promoted to the post of inspector in 1994. He is survived by his wife, two daughters and a son. His eldest daughter Harita got married on February 19.
Ranga's body was found when a policeman went to inform him about a PCR call. “The duty constable tried to wake him up and he saw blood coming out from his nose. He was immediately rushed to Bara Hindu Rao Hospital where he was declared brought dead,” said a senior police officer. His body did not have any injury marks.
Before retiring to his room on Thursday night he held a meeting with his subordinates.
“He was suffering from diabetes and last week he underwent an angiography test. He had a blood pressure problem as well,” said Jagat Singh, Ranga's younger brother.
His postmortem report ruled out any foul play and it suspected that he died due to suspected cardiac failure.
