Starvation deaths: Delhi police team sent to West Bengal to trace father of deceased girls
Police said they were awaiting the viscera report, which would help determine whether the girls were given any medicine that could have led to their death.
A day after a preliminary magisterial probe report sought a "deeper investigation" into the conduct of the father of the three girls, who died allegedly due to starvation in east Delhi, a police team was today sent to his native place in West Bengal to trace him, a senior officer said.
A magisterial probe report had said Singh had given some "unknown medicine" to his daughters by "mixing it in hot water" on the night of July 23 and he had been missing since the morning of July 24.
The sisters were declared brought dead by doctors at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital on July 24.
The initial autopsy reports had suggested that they died due to starvation. A medical board at the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital had conducted a second autopsy at the request of the police, which had corroborated the first post-mortem report.
