Delhi Police on Tuesday said they will recreate the scene of events that led to the death of Hindustan Times journalist Jayanta Kumar Rath (26) at the New Delhi Railway station, in a day or two.

Rath was reportedly killed on May 7 when he was hit by a train while on way to catch a train for his hometown in Orissa.

“The SIT that is investigating the case will recreate the chain of events that could have led to his death. We would do this with the help of the account provided by his family members and the railway officials,” said Amulya Patnaik, joint commissioner of police (crime).

He said the police were taking the help of railway officials in the case.

Patnaik said so far they have not found any eyewitnesses in the case and are still interrogating porters and hawkers at the platform.

“We are also analysing call details of Rath but so far we have not got any clue,” he said.
The case was handed over to the SIT to probe Rath’s death after his family expressed dissatisfaction with the probe.
