Police commit suicide after heavy losses in online games

CHENNAI: After a policeman attached to the Coimbatore Armed City Force committed suicide, his friends and relatives blamed the online rummy game he was addicted to as the reason.

Kalimuthu, 29, played online rummy games, incurring large losses and debts, and borrowed more than Rs 20 lakh from people he knew, including friends and family. The police officer had agreed to reimburse his creditors as soon as possible, but he was unable to do so on time.

In an exhibition in Gandhipuram, Coimbatore, 32 government departments have settled. Kalimuthu was on duty as the police stand displayed their weaponry. He shot himself in the abdomen on Friday afternoon while working alone and using an SLR gun from the screen.

According to a senior Coimbatore city police official, the bullet entered through the stomach and exited through the victim’s back. When his colleagues arrived at the scene after hearing the shot, they found Kalimuthu lying in a pool of blood. They rushed him to a private hospital in Coimbatore, where surgeons performed the necessary procedures.

He lost his battle with his injuries early this morning due to kidney damage from the gunshot. He did not respond to treatment. Kalimuthu, from Virudhunagar district in Tamil Nadu, is survived by his wife Salai Thillanaikai and their two young children, aged four and three.
