PUNE/NASHIK: A 37-year-old police sub-inspector (PSI) posted with Amboli police in Mumbai was found dead on the railway tracks adjacent to Sangam bridge at Shivajinagar near Pune on Tuesday morning. He is suspected to have ended his life after the wife of a senior police officer lodged a complaint of rape against him with Nashik police late on Monday.

When she decided to go ahead with the rape complaint, police registered the offence. While the proces was on, Sanap left the police station and did not return.

In her complaint, the woman said Sanap, who is also married with children, first met her on May 31, 2014, through her husband. Both families are from Nashik Road area.
