A 37-year-old man allegedly shot himself dead in West Bengal's South 24 Parganas district in the early hours of Sunday, police said.

The incident happened in South Laskarpur in Narendrapur police station area, they said.

Bhola Das lost his job a few months ago and was in depression since then. He also drank regularly, police said.

He was married and had an eight-year-old daughter, they said.

He shot himself on the thigh around 3 am and died after profuse bleeding, they added.
