A 27 year old Assistant Professor at Delhi University’s St. Stephen College was found dead on the railway tracks near Sarai Rohilla Station on Saturday afternoon, 19th October 2019. About half an hour after the professor’s body was found, his mother was found hanging at their apartment in Pitampura.
The police have suspected foul play on the part of the professor. They alleged that he first killed his mother and then went out and threw himself under a train. A four-page suicide note and two knives were found in the apartment when the mother was discovered.
The police registered the death of the mother as a murder, as she was found with clothes stuffed in her mouth, and her limbs tied up. According to sources, and one of their relatives, both of them were involved as suspects in a abetted suicide case, back in their hometown in Kerela. Although they had received bail, they were depressed because of the pressure of the case, which leads to suicide.
The police found the man’s body sliced in half with his severed body laying between the tracks, around 1 pm on Saturday 19th October 2019. The identity was confirmed using the professor’s driving license. The bodies of the duo have been sent to different government hospitals and the autopsy reports are awaited.
