The Aligarh police have arrested two persons in the case of death of Dr Siras who had hogged the limelight due to gay scandal in Aligarh Muslim University. the police would also record the statement of AMU officials in this matter.

SP (City) Man Singh who is handling the investigations told media persons that dead body of Dr S R Siras was found in his rented room in Durgabari locality.

He had alleged involvement of Adil who claimed to be a TV channel reporter and cameraman Siraj along with some AMU officials. SP (city) told that on Sunday night so-called reporter Adil and Cameraman Siraj were arrested. Police are interrogating them.

SP (City) told that police would lodge another case against arrested persons because management of TV 100 channel met the SSP and lodged a complaint that these so-called reports have not submitted ID issued to them despite requests to do so.

On Monday officials of AMU who figured in FIR will be again grilled. It should be recalled that many people including the PRO had been named in FIR by Dr Siras.

His vicera has been sent for test and the police had been awaiting the report. Real reason behind his death may be known only after police receive the report. In the meantime human right activists and gay organisations are gearing up to carry on the case to its logical end.
