Gurgaon: A personal security officer (PSO) of murdered liquor baron Ponty Chadha, deployed at his farmhouse in Delhi's Chhattarpur area, has committed suicide by shooting himself in his house here, police said on Thursday.
Rakesh Yadav, 36, a resident of Sanjay village here under Civil Lines police station, on late Wednesday night allegedly shot himself in head. No suicide note was found, said police.
Ponty Chadha and his brother were killed at a farmhouse in Chhattarpur in south Delhi in a shootout on November 17, 2012, allegedly over a property dispute.
Yadav was still working in Chadha Group's security cell and was deployed at Chadha's farmhouse in Chhattarpur for more than three and a half years. Yadav took voluntary retirement from the Border Security Force (BSF) before joining the services of Ponty Chadha.
He returned after 11pm on Wednesday night and shot himself after a tiff with his wife, said police.
"He was in inebriated condition. After a short quarrel with his wife over coming late in the night and drinking, he shot himself with his licensed pistol," investigation officer Satender Kumar said.
