Send Akshay’s viscera samples to CSFL, AIIMS tells MP cops

New Delhi, July 8 (IANS) The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has urged the Madhya Pradesh police to send the viscera samples of deceased TV journalist Akshay Singh to CFSL since it didn’t have the mandate to conduct viscera examination.

“In a letter to the police on Tuesday evening, AIIMS forensic head urged them to take the samples to a Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) as the hospital doesn’t have the mandate to conduct the viscera examination,” a senior doctor of the forensic department, who did not wish to be named, told IANS.

“AIIMS only conducts autopsies. For every viscera examination, the samples are sent to the CFSL,” he said.

The viscera samples of Akshay Singh, an Aaj Tak TV journalist who died under mysterious circumstances while covering the Vyapam scam in Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh on Saturday, were brought to AIIMS on Tuesday by the Madhya Pradesh police.

Akshay died soon after interviewing the parents of a girl found dead in 2012 after her name figured in the massive Vyapam scam.

Over 40 people allegedly associated with the admission and recruitment scam in Vyapam – the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal or Professional Examination Board – have died since 2013 under mysterious circumstances or committed suicide.
