family is in a state of shock and disbelief. Their 26-year-old son Dr Saravanan Ganesan, an AIIMS student was found dead, lying on his bed in his South Delhi apartment on July 10. The Delhi police suspect his death to be suicide after they found one cannula inserted in his right hand which had been plastered for support and two syringes. The police suspect that the injection that was administered was possibly potassium chloride. But his grieving family want answers, refusing to believe that he committed suicide.
Saravanan’s brother-in-law Saravana Kumar, who went to Delhi to receive his body, said, “Even the most experienced right-handed doctor cannot inject a cannula (or venflon) in his right arm perfectly. The cap of the syringe was missing. There was no empty vial in the room. While the police claims to have broken into the room, there were no signs of that having done because all the locks were in place when I had come to collect his belongings.” Kumar alleged that after the police inspected the crime-scene, they had left the room unattended. “Any crucial evidence could have gone missing right?” he asked. He asserted that someone like Saravanan, who had aced the medical exam and was a meritorious student could not have killed himself.
