Wednesday, 10 January 2018 | PNS | Dehradun-
Prakash Pandey, the transporter who had consumed pesticide before attending a Janata Milan programme chaired by Cabinet Minister Subodh Uniyal at the Bharatiya Janata Partry State head office on Saturday blaming demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) for his financial woes died at a private hospital here on Tuesday.
He had been kept on life support system and the doctors did their best to save him. After his death the district administration decided to conduct post mortem at the private hospital itself.
The Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Dehradun, Dr YS Thapliyal said that the viscera of Pandey was collected and its examination would reveal the nature of poison consumed by him. He opined that the claim of Pandey that he consumed Celphos (Aluminium Phosphide) seems correct.
The body of Pandey was handed over to his grieving family members. Talking to the media persons, one of the relatives said that Pandey was disturbed due to his financial condition for some time. He termed the death of Pandey a murder and not suicide as he was forced to take this extreme step. Pandey’s cremation would take place at his hometown Kathgodam in Nainital district. Meanwhile in view of the sensitivity of the case, the district authorities have deployed additional police force to prevent any untoward incident.
