Following the post-mortem report indicating murder of the postgraduate student of AIIMS Saravanan Ganesh, political leaders have asked the Centre to conduct a proper investigation, including a CBI probe into the case.

Rajya Sabha member and DMK’s women’s wing leader Kanimozhi asked the Centre for a CBI probe. In a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh, she wrote, “A CBI probe must be ordered into the suspicious death (of Saravanan Ganesh). The probe must be time-bound and completed without delay,” according to The New Indian Express.

The operative part of the post-mortem report read - "Poisoning by intravenous injection. The exact fixing of canula on the right forearm, as found in this case, is not possible by the deceased himself and self-insertion is ruled out. Injection canula could only be inserted by a person trained with this procedure hence it requires a meticulous investigation about the person/persons involved."

Tamil Nadu Congress Committee President S Thirunavukkarasar on Friday also wanted the Centre to carry out an investigation and punish the culprits. He told TNIE that the post-mortem report was shocking and agonising. To find the culprits, a proper investigation is required in the case.

Also, he asked the Centre to provide a compensation of Rs 1 crore to the family of Saravanan Ganesh.

TK Rangarajan, Rajya Sabha member and senior leader of the communist party said that such incidents will affect the confidence of the younger generation who pursue higher education, where competition is so high.

He also spoke about the initial claim by the Delhi police that it was a suicide. He said that such claims might affect the investigation agencies who try to collect evidence in the case. He added that criminal action needs to be investigated and the culprits must be punished.
