In another twist in the mysterious death of BBA student Paras Bhasin, Delhi police on Wednesday said Bhasin's wife had given them a two-page suicide note, reportedly written a couple of days before his dismembered body was found on railways tracks on September 1.
"The girl's family has given us the suicide note the contents of which we can't share as this will hamper our investigation," said Sanjay Kumar Jain, DCP (crime and railways).
Sources said Bhasin's wife, in her statement to the police, said they had jointly written the two-page suicide note on August 27, the day they went near Jhilmil colony railway tracks to commit suicide together. She said they backed off as she panicked. The suicide note has signatures of both Bhasin and his wife. While the first page was written by Bhasin, his wife wrote the second page, said a source.
In the alleged suicide note, the source said, the couple had mentioned that they were taking the extreme step on their own and that they parents should not be blamed.
Meanwhile, Bhasin's family has claimed that the doctor who conducted the autopsy on Bhasin's body told them that he was made unconscious with chloroform before he came on the tracks and got hit by a train. Paras's brother-in-law Karan said, "The doctor who conducted the autopsy said Paras was made unconscious before he died."
Police are also trying to find out whether Bhasin had gone near the railway tracks alone or he was accompanied by someone.
Police have also questioned eight close friends of Bhasin. In the evening, additional DCP (crime and railways) Sanjay Bhatia questioned Bhasin's family at their house.
On Wednesday evening, Bhasin's family members, relatives and friends staged a candle vigil at India Gate to protest police's approach towards the case.
