BHOPAL/SHAHDOL: The sub inspector, who had allegedly shot dead his wife before killing himself with service revolver, was restless on the day of incident. Hira Singh did not speak to any of his colleagues in police station before he headed for his residence on his bike. He was posted in Rewa district and went to Shahdol on his bike travelling a distance of over 200 kilometres without telling anyone.
