Raipur, Oct 26: A CRPF jawan allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself with his service weapon at the paramilitary camp in Chhattisgarh's worst insurgency-hit Sukma district, police said today.

The jawan was a native of Bharatpur in Rajasthan. The reason why the jawan shot himself dead is yet to be ascertained, the officer said, adding a case has been registered in this connection and investigations are underway.
