Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit met Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde in the wake of the alleged suicide by Ram Sigh, the main accused in the December 16 gangrape case.
“A magisterial inquiry has already been ordered. Till the report comes, it will be difficult to comment on the issue. Let the autopsy report come, things will be clear,” Dikshit said.
Singh’s family alleged that he was murdered and demanded a CBI probe into the incident. “He has not committed suicide.He has been murdered and then hanged. I am saying this on the basis of the fact that evidences has been erased. He could not move his hand as it has fractures. “I am also demanding that the post mortem be held in front of me,” one of the family members said.
Reacting to the incident, the girl’s family said they were “surprised but not saddened” by the suicide and are waiting for the four others to be sent to the gallows.”We are surprised at the suicide but we are not sad. He would have been hanged even otherwise. We wanted him to be hanged publicly. He might have hanged because of shame. Now we are waiting for the four others to be sent to the gallows,” they said.
