Probe ordered into mechanic's death
Varanasi, Sep 14 (UNI) A probe has been ordered into the mysterious death of a mechanic, whose body was found near railway tracks in Kapsethi area here yesterday and the subsequent recovery of a hand written note pointing towards role of police in the matter.
The probe-team is headed by Police Superintendent (Rural) L K Singh, Inspector General of Police (Varanasi Zone) A C Sharma said here today.
The SP (Rural), meanwhile, said preliminary findings suggest that the cops were in no way involved in the case.
''Even as per the post-mortem report of the mechanic's body, he might have been run over fatally by a train on which he was travelling,'' Mr Singh claimed.
The body of Kapil Deo (25) -- a mechanic of carpet weaving instrument from neighbouring Bhadohi district -- was found near the railway tracks in Shivdaspur village.
Getting the information, his family members reached the spot and after seeing his neck tied with a scarf and injury marks on the body they alleged that he was murdered and thrown onto the tracks.
The body was sent for post-mortem and then cremated.
During cremation, the family found a note, allegedly written by Kapil, from his mobile phone case, in which it was mentioned that cops deployed at Mehmoorganj police outpost here on Tuesday night first snatched Rs 40,000 from him. They later threatened to killi him and throw his body on the railway tracks, the note added.
