A Central Industrial Security Force constable shot himself with his service rifle on duty at Madurai airport in southern Tamil Nadu on Sunday.

The CISF and police could not immediately say what led constable Ashok Kumar, 44, who hailed from Uttar Pradesh, to commit suicide just before he was to attend a routine debriefing session in the afternoon.

Kumar was with the CISF's 8th Battalion. "He was absolutely normal and even had his weekly off on Saturday," Madurai superintendent of police V Balakrishnan said.
