Cairo: A low-ranking policeman shot himself in the head Thursday morning inside Al-Qusima police station in Central Sinai.

The policeman was called Mohamed Fahmy, 36, and the reason given for his suicide was financial troubles and family disputes, according to the online news portal Masrawy.

Sources in Sinai told Daily News Egypt that Fahmy was on duty at the time.

Masrawy also reported that low ranking policemen in Sinai do not earn more than LE 600 a month, which was causing financial constraints on them and caused them to ask for a raise in their wages.

This incident comes in the wake of a similar incident in Ismailia on Jan. 11, when a low-ranking traffic policeman also attempted suicide by shooting himself in the head. He didn’t die as a result of the wound and was taken to hospital where he is currently being treated.
