A retired policeman allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a fan inside his house in Uttar Pradesh's Ballia district, police said on Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as Kripashankar (63), a resident of Sitakund village. He retired from the Chhattisgarh Police three years ago, they said.

On Friday, Kripashankar's daughter-in-law went to his room to give him food but he did not open the door. His family members peered through a window and saw his body hanging from the fan, the police said.

Kripashankar's wife died two years ago and he was depressed, they said.

The body has been sent for a post-mortem examination and the matter is being probed, the police said.
