New Delhi: The probe into the death of a Delhi Police constable, allegedly during the recent protests against the gang-rape of a medical student in New Delhi, has been handed to the Crime Branch.
Constable Subhash Chand Tomar was cremated with full state honours on Tuesday.
The 47-year-old constable died early Tuesday due to respiratory and cardiovascular problems sparked off by Sunday`s alleged attack on him on a road leading to India Gate during protests against the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman on December 16 night in a moving bus in South Delhi.
An eyewitness has claimed that Tomar was not beaten up by protesters, but collapsed while walking.
Also, Dr PS Sidhu at Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital has told a news agency that the constable had no major external injury marks when he was brought to the hospital.
