Kochi: A fortnight after a cop committed suicide in police station premises, another policeman ended his life in the city today.

The 40-year-old Gopakumar was found hanging in a lodge. Gopakumar was a probationer SI and was stressed over the work load as per the preliminary reports, police said.

Attached to Ernakulam North police station, Gopakumar had checked in at a hotel near Ernakulam Town railway station.
