GUYANA — A young police constable reportedly committed suicide on Sunday evening after reportedly being “harassed” over a photo of him kissing another man which was leaked on social media.
Police Constable Shivraj Harilall also known as Peter, 21, of Bath Settlement, West Coast Berbice, took his life after a night out with friends, according to reports.
Harilal, who was stationed at the Clonbrook Police outpost, East Coast Demerara, as a General Duty rank, according to news reports, was out partying with friends on Sunday night and some of them knew of his intentions to take his own life and tried to talk him out of it.
They reportedly took him home in an inebriated state, thinking that he had changed his mind. However, Harilal committed the act after his friends left.
Harilal joined the police force last year.
An investigation is underway.
