2 YEARS ON, MURDER CASE FILED IN MEDICO’S DEATH
Amritsar August 25:
After 21 months of the death of a final-year MBBS student Shashi Bhushan, the police has registered a murder case against unidentified persons based on the second post-mortem report, which was conducted in Delhi.
The police today started investigations by recording the statements of Bhushan’s friends and employees of the medical college in which he studied. Earlier, the police had suspected it to be a natural death when Shashi’s body was found in a gutter two days after he had gone missing in November, 2006.
A resident of Bihar, Shashi was caught helping Dr Arun Dalal, son of former principal of the Government Medical College, Dr J.S. Dalal, in copying. After the incident he went missing. Dr Dalal is at present posted as director, Research and Medical Education.
The GMC administration had stated that Shashi, in fear of being caught by the flying staff, had hidden himself in a room from where he might have fallen into the gutter. Relatives of Shashi suspected foul play in his death. They had complained to then deputy commissioner, who had ordered a judicial probe under SDM Manpreet Singh.
Meanwhile, the report of the post-mortem conducted in Delhi confirmed six injuries on Shashi’s body while the first report had stated only one injury on his head. Meanwhile, Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh, district police chief, said the SHO of the Majitha road police station had been entrusted the inquiry into the case.
