Noida: The Noida po­lice on Satur­day reg­is­tered a case of mur­der against uniden­ti­fied per­sons for the death of Ma­nipur-based stu­dent Prav­ish Chanam (22).

In­ves­ti­ga­tions re­vealed that Prav­ish did not dis­ap­pear mys­te­ri­ously, but was rushed to the dis­trict hos­pi­tal by the event or­gan­iser of the con­cert when his con­di­tion de­te­ri­o­rated that night. Dr Amit, who was de­ployed at the Expo Mart that night, said Prav­ish had con­sumed liquor and was found un­con­scious at 9.30pm. “We im­me­di­ately sent him to the dis­trict hos­pi­tal,” he added.

In the hos­pi­tal, he was reg­is­tered as ‘un­known’ since he was not able to state his name.

The vic­tim was ad­min­is­tered medicines and showed rest­less­ness at fre­quent in­ter­vals. At 6.30 am on Septem­ber 9, Prav­ish fled the hos­pi­tal premises. How­ever, around 5pm his body was found near a car mar­ket in Nithari vil­lage. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing what tran­spired in those10 hours be­tween the time he fled the hos­pi­tal till he was found dead.

Phan­joubam Linthoingambi, Prav­ish’s cousin said that ac­cord­ing to the au­topsy re­port, the cause of death was shock and haem­or­rhage due to head in­jury. “He also had mul­ti­ple abraded con­tu­sions and swelling on his body. This clearly showed that there was crim­i­nal in­tent be­hind his death,” he said.

Cops again vis­ited the spot where the body was found. “Lo­cals con­firmed that they had seen the boy in the af­ter­noon. A rick­shaw-puller said that when they asked the boy about his con­di­tion, he said a Royal En­field bul­let had hit him,” said SSP Love Ku­mar said.

Ku­mar said the ac­ci­dent may have led to the in­jury re­sult­ing in Prav­ish’s death.
