Jabalpur dean Sakalley was murdered with Chinese laser weapon: IMA

BHOPAL: Indian Medical Association (IMA) believe Jabalpur medical college dean Dr DK Sakalley - who was in the investigating committee probing multi-layered scam - was murdered with a ‘Chinese laser weapon’.

Dr Sakalley was murdered with the laser technology that we use for surgeries. It was a cold blooded murder. There are dangerous Chinese laser equipments that are being smuggled to India through Nepal via Bihar,” alleged Dr Sudhir Tiwari, president of the IMA’s Jabalpur branch in Madhya Pradesh.

“If he had doused himself with kerosene committed suicide his cloths would have been wet. Nothing as such was found. And being a forensic expert he knew less painful ways to commit suicide. I don't believe that he will take this step,” said Dr Tiwari adding his life was also under threat from MPPEB scammers.

Witness and people linked to the scam are being eliminated one after the other, I might be the next...who knows?, he said.

Noteworthy that the state government has stoutly opposed a CBI probe into the MPPEB scam despite widespread outrage, but it had swiftly recommended for a probe by the premier investigating agency into the mystery suicide of Jabalpur medical college dean Dr DK Sakalley.

Dr Sakalley, who was also HoD of forensic department of the college, was seen rushing out of official residence in flames on July 4, 2014 morning, screaming for help. But before he could be taken to hospital by neighbours, he succumbed on the way as he had by then suffered more than 90% burns.

Dr Sakalley was on the investigating committee probing the multi-layered Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board scam and his death had raised many questions.

Congress MLA Sachin Yadav raised the matter in the House during a call attention motion. It was during the reply that Gaur promised to get the case investigated by an agency that the House deemed appropriate. When the Congress asked for a CBI inquiry, Gaur immediately agreed to it.

The minister read out police version of the incident on lines of a suicide. He said Dr Sakalley's wife Bhakti was walking on the lawn of the house from 6:45 to 7:00 am with a Doberman dog. When she entered the house at 7:30 am, she found her husband with severe burns on the floor. She called for her driver and rushed Dr Sakalley to the medical college where he was declared dead.

Cops and forensic investigations found a 5 litre can with 3.5 litre kerosene in his house. A match box and a burnt match stick were recovered along with charred cloth pieces. No suicide note was found.

A team of five doctors and forensic experts conducted the post-mortem. The cause of death was given as "Shock as a result of ante-mortem flame burns involving about 96% of total body area.

Congress raised questions regarding contents of the kerosene can. Former congress MLA from Bhind Dr Govind Singh had even argued in house, "Does anyone commit suicide without a reason? The wife was in the lawn with the dog and the dean of a medical college sets himself on fire. Why?

The Congress also asked that if 3.5 litres of kerosene was still in the can, then only 1.5 litres was used to set the dean aflame. Could 1.5 litres of kerosene cause 96% burns? In reply, the minister assured probe by any agency and a CBI probe was recommended.
