KOZHIKODE: The DGP said there was no lapse in making the proforma in the death of Siddharth, a student of Pookode Veterinary College. He clarified this in his reply to the home secretary. The home secretary alleged delay in handing over the case to the CBI.


The allegation was that despite earlier notification, the police delayed the proceedings. The procedure so far is to issue proforma documents soon after the government notification is issued. The home secretary sought an explanation from the DGP in this regard. The documents were demanded on March 16th. The DGP explained that the documents were submitted on March 25th and only a natural delay was there.


Siddharth was found hanging in the washroom of the hostel room on February 18. Siddharth was subjected to brutal harassment by the seniors before his death. The case was recently taken over by the CBI.


There are 20 accused in the police FIR. However, the CBI's FIR said there are more unknown accused besides them. The investigation team had the other day taken the statement of Siddharth's father Jayaprakash.

Siddharth's father had earlier said that he had full hope in the CBI investigation. The CBI is investigating whether Siddharth committed suicide or it was a murder, the reasons leading to his death, the conspiracy behind the incident, whether the brutal violence was planned, the role of the dean and the warden, whether the witness statements were tampered with, the lapses in the police investigation, whether the accused got political asylum, etc.
