An army jawan allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself with his service rifle inside a camp in Ganderbal district of Kashmir on Sunday night.

Sunil, a sepoy in the army, was on sentry duty at Wusan camp in Kangan area, 40 kms from here, when his colleagues heard a shot last night and rushed towards him, they said.

The jawan was found dead. The preliminary investigation has revealed that the sepoy used his service rifle to end his life, police said on Monday. It was, however, not immediately known what prompted him to take the extreme step.
