Father demands CBI probe into girl’s death

Our Correspondent

Hamirpur, September 12

Ram Chand Thakur, father of deceased physiotherapist Jyoti Thakur, demanded CBI inquiry into the death of his daughter here today.

Notably, Jyoti, who was posted at the Zonal Hospital, Bilaspur, had allegedly committed suicide on the intervening night of September 5 and 6 at her rented accommodation in Bilaspur. Her body was found partially hanged with the ceiling fan.

Ram Chand Thakur today met Madan Chauhan, Deputy Commissioner, here along with a delegation of residents, and submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister and Governor seeking fair investigation into the death of his daughter.

He alleged that the police had tried to mislead him from the beginning and the versions and actions of the police did not match.

He said he was told by the police that the police would initiate the inspection of the room after his arrival in Bilaspur, but pictures of the girl hanging became viral on social media before that. He alleged that the police did not give him the phone details even after seven days of the incident. He also suspected that the deceased did not commit suicide, but was killed. He also alleged that the police were trying to close the case by terming it a suicide case.

Chauhan said he had received a request from the father of Jyoti, which would be sent to the Governor and the Chief Minister offices.

He said he had also discussed the issue with the Superintendent of Police, Bilaspur, and appraised her of their demand.

He said he would do best to bring the reality to the fore.
