A bizarre case has been reported in South Mumbai where a gold businessman committed suicide by allegedly shooting himself.
The shooting is said to have taken place with a licensed revolver, police said.
But the police also added that they came to know about the suicide on Friday.
It was said that the deceased businessman was identified as 40-year-old Ashwin Jain.
The case came to fore when Ashwin’s father Lalitkumar, also a gold businessman, lodged a missing complaint at Kalachaukie police station.
Police said that a few local residents spotted him lying in a pool of blood inside his yellow Wagon R car.
Police suspects that the businessman may have been in debt and thus took the extreme step.
The deceased is now survived by wife, one son and his father.>
