Banda, Social Times. On Wednesday a revenue officer allegedly hanged himself at his home near the Tindwari road grain market.


Vivek Kumar (30), who was working as a 'Lekhpal', committed suicide on Tuesday, local SHO Bhaskar Mishra said, adding that the body has been sent for a post-mortem examination.


A prima facie probe revealed that Kumar was a drunkard and took the extreme step due to a family dispute, he said.


A probe is on in the matter, the police added.
