The report which was sourced from Delhi's Lal Path Labs seems to suggest that he might have been poisoned. Nigamanand was a fellow patient with Baba Ramdev in the ICU at the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences in Dehradun. When Ramdev stole media space with his fast against graft, Nigamanand's silent protest yielded no result.
The pathology report suggests that he might have been poisoned with insecticide. His post mortem report has however confirmed malnutrition and scepticaemia as the cause of death owing to the prolonged duration of fast. Further investigations are expected to be conducted to ascertain the exact cause of his death. The Uttarakhand government had ordered a CB-CID probe into the Swami's death.
Further investigations will prove if there was an effort to silence the 'Save Ganga' crusader.
