A case under Sections 302 and 34 of the IPC was registered against Wing Commander Bharat Kumar and Flight Lt Ram Kumar Mourya at Adampur Police Station in connection with the death of Sachin Bahari (28), a Group D employee, working as accountant in the station for the last four years. However, defence spokesman Naresh Vig said that deceased committed suicide by consuming some poisonous substance this morning. When he was seen vomiting, his colleagues immidiately provided him with first aid and then rushed him to the Military Hospital, where he died on the way, Mr Vig said.

He said that the deceased had allegedly committed some bungling in the mess accounts. An enquiry conducted in this regard established the fact that he did not deposit over Rs one lakh in the bank, he added.

On the other hand, Sachin's parents alleged that the IAF officers committed the irregularity themselves and wanted to put the blame on him.

They said that as Sachin got married on February 3, he was on leave and yesterday, the officials called him to the station. In order to make him the scapegoat, he was beaten to death, they alleged.

Afer hearing the news of the death, deceased's parents, relatives along with other villagers staged a protest infront of the Airforce Station gate. Shouting slogans against the officials, they tried to enter the station and even succeeded in breaking the first gate before they were stopped.
