Doctor acquitted in '84 riots case stabbed to death

The police are probing if he was killed for his alleged involvement in the carnage.

The incident was reported from Block 32 of Trilokpuri in west Delhi at around 6:30 pm on Saturday.

Babulal Kashyap, who had been practising in the area since 1978, was attending to a woman patient at his clinic-cum-residence when a man ran inside  and stabbed him on his chest and forehead, a senior police official said.

The attacker fled from the spot and Kashyap’s son and a local chased him in vain.
Kashyap was rushed to Lal Bhadur Shastri hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead.

Locals claimed they had seen a man with a blanket running through the streets.
Officials ruled out robbery as the motive and suspect it as a case of personal enmity.

“We have heard that the doctor was an accused in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. We are digging up all facts. All angles including the possibility of him being killed for his alleged involvement in anti-Sikh riots is being probed,” the police official said. A case has been registered in this regard.
