COIMBATORE: A police officer, who was shot with his own rifle on Friday night in Coimbatore, died in a private hospital early Saturday. The deceased, R Kalimuthu (29), attached to Coimbatore City Armed Reserve Battalion II Police, had been on duty since 2013. A case of attempted suicide reserved under Section 309 of the IPC by Racecourse Police was later replaced by CrPC Section 174 (Accidental Fire).

Kalimuthu who hails from Melathulukkankulam village in Virudhunagar district was deployed to guard the police station of a government exhibition held at Gandhipuram in the city. According to sources, at around 3:40 p.m. Friday, while pitting alone, a bullet from his SLR pierced his right abdomen and exited through his back. He was admitted to a private hospital. His body was later transferred to Coimbatore Medical College Hospital for an autopsy, police said.

Kalimuthu had borrowed around Rs 20 lakh and lost it in the online game. Meanwhile, PMK leader Anbumani Ramadoss has questioned the state government for failing to pass an ordinance banning online gambling even after the expert committee submitted its report. Former CM Edappadi K Palaniswami also questioned the government over the delay.
