The Chief Executive Officer of Belagavi Cantonment Board was found dead at his official residence here on Saturday morning, police said.
K Anand (40), who hailed from Tamil Nadu, was posted in Belagavi since over the last one and a half years. He lived alone here.
No visible injuries marks were found on his body, they said and suspect it to be a case of suicide. However, no suicide note has been recovered yet.
According to police, Anand had not been going to office for the last two days. When a police team reached his residence this morning, the main door was locked from inside. The team then broke open the door and found him lying lifeless on the floor.
