New Delhi, Jul 1: The death of key A Raja aide Sadiq Batcha had the unique distinction of becoming the first casualty in the 2G spectrum case. A flurry of conspiracies had erupted after Batcha was found dead in his home on Mar 16. After the conflicting reports, the CBI is expected to send a team of doctors of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to Chennai to probe the matter in detail.

Sources within the CBI revealed that the expert team of doctors from AIIMS would examine the viscera as well check Batcha's body. The decision was made following suspicion of foul play on the circumstances that led to his death.

Now with the CBI turning its hawk-eyes back in to the case has revealed that Batcha might have been murdered after fears rose that he might turn approver and hold key evidences against the accused. A top CBI official has been quoted as saying, “Our probe into the mysterious death of Batcha indicates that he was probably 'murdered'. Circumstances under which body was found in his room, does not suggest suicide. Even the doctor, who conducted autopsy has also confirmed death due to asphyxia and his body showed compression of the neck with hanging marks. But we are waiting for final chemical report of viscera."
