While the Delhi police has termed the death of the junior resident doctor at AIIMS a suicide, the post mortem report that came out on Monday has raised questions about the assessment, bringing in the possibility of it being a murder.
On July 10, 26 -year-old Saravanan Ganeshan was found dead in his rented flat in Hauz Khas village in Delhi. The police claimed that the doctor had committed suicide by injecting poison in his bloodstream, suspected to be potassium chloride.
A source at AIIMS said, “The autopsy report says there were no external or internal injuries. It also says that blood stains were found on his bed and towel. It also pointed at the missing vial from the crime scene.”
“The report gives a mixed picture so only further probe will decide what really happened,” he said.
Nupur Prasad the ADGP in charge told The News Minute that the police are yet to look into the details of the post mortem report.
“We are also waiting for the toxicology report and have asked to expedite the process,” said Nupur.
As far as the circumstances of the death are concerned, it remains mysterious as the family is getting conflicting reports on what really happened. Family and friends have also demanded a CBI enquiry into the case as they feel the education mafia could have played a role.
Saravanan, who was pursuing General Medicine at AIIMS, hails from Tiruppur district. After completing his MBBS from Madurai Medical College, he secured 73rd rank in the AIIMS entrance exam, qualifying for Pathology. He quit the course in March and returned to Tiruppur and spent three months preparing for the AIIMS entrance exam again. Securing the 47th rank this year, he qualified for General Medicine.
Family and friends claim that it was impossible for Saravanan, who was right-handed, to inject himself with his left hand. This is just one among the many other doubts they have raised.
Political leaders from Tamil Nadu including MK Stalin, Kanimozhi and Anbumani Ramadoss have also sought the state government’s intervention in the case.
