Milk trader shoots self, dies in car

New Delhi:A 50-year-old milk trader allegedly committed suicide today by shooting himself in his car at a forested area of north east Delhi’s Madanpur Khadar.

Ashok Bansal, who lived with his family at Bhajanpura, had left for his milk dairy at around 7 am. His body was found in his car with its engine running and doors locked at Madanpur Khadar jungle at around 11 am, a police officer said.

The air conditioner and music system of the car were on and the body bore a gunshot injury on head. A country-made pistol was recovered from the car but Bansal did not leave behind any suicide note, the officer said.

Police said that prima facie it appeared to be a case of suicide as the deceased was learnt to be burdened by heavy loans.

He is survived by his wife and two married sons.
