NEW DELHI: Delhi Police’s investigation have ruled out any foul play after initial findings of panel of doctors who conducted postmortem said that Muthu krishnan’s body has no injury marks. But cops are unable to find out the reason which triggered him to commit suicide. Meanwhile, after central government pressured Delhi police to file a case, Delhi police, on the basis of Muthu krishnan’s father complaints, filed a case of abetment to suicide along with the sections of The Scheduled Castes (SCs) and the Scheduled Tribes (STs) Prevention of Atrocities (PoA) Act.

According to a senior police official, during investigation it has been found that he had shared some incidents with his friends regarding ‘bad behaviour’ he faced with fellow students which may have triggered suicide. Cops are analyzing his phone chats and other social media chats. “After analyzing his(Muthu krishnan) personal conversation we have found that he had discussed various things with his friends hinting that he faced bad behavior of fellow students. We will ask students to join the investigation,” a senior police official claimed.

“The photographs of the site of the incident showed my son's body tied to and hanging from the ceiling fan with a long piece of cloth. His knees were bent and his feet touched the ground. The position of his body raises doubts about the claim that my son committed suicide," FIR says based on Muthu krishnan’s father Jeevandham complaint. JNU student Muthukrishnan’s friends and father are raising questions over the death and claiming that he died under mysterious circumstances.

On the other side, Delhi police is claiming that initial findings of doctors after conducting postmortem say that Muthu krishnan had no injury marks on his body. “Doctors have overruled any foul play, postmortem report will be given soon. Cause of death will be clear once doctors will hand over postmortem report,” official said. AIIMS hospital had constituted a five-member board to conduct the autopsy and issued direction for videography of the procedure that is being carried out on Wednesday. Case will be investigated by an Assitant commissioner of Police rank officer. The student's father had said that his son cannot commit suicide and had demanded a CBI probe.
