Batcha died due to asphyxia, say doctors

Batcha died due to asphyxia, say doctors

The postmortem on Batcha was completed on Thursday afternoon and his body was handed over to his relatives to be taken to his native village in Perambalur district for the last rites, a senior police officer involved with the investigations told Deccan Herald.
Though no final answers are available yet to queries of  ‘suicide or homicide’ since Batcha’s death under mysterious circumstances, there “is no suspicion of any foul-play till now,” the official said.

The postmortem as per procedure was video-graphed and the ‘vital organs’ from Batcha’s body were carefully preserved and sent for chemical/forensic examination, the official said. That report is expected to take a week or two and only after the outcome of the chemical examination was known can there be a final report, the official added.
However, in the preliminary report, there were clearly marks of hanging on Batcha’s neck, while the rope used and its size have all been tallied and confirmed, he said. These things do point to suicide. On whether Batcha had consumed any toxic substance before his desperate act the official pointed out that it will be known only in the final report.
Batcha, ever since the CBI had zeroed in on him in connection with the 2G scam and in tracing the payments trail, was said to have turned extremely reserved, keeping to himself most of the time. 

Even on Wednesday, Batcha was believed to have shut himself in his bedroom around 9 am. “But all these are matters of detail and as the investigation is going on, everything has to be verified before coming to conclusions,” the official noted.

The CBI is yet to formally take over the investigations into this shockingly sensational suicide case as the procedures will take some time, the police said.
