Badrish Dutt was part of IPL betting investigation
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Celebrated Delhi police inspector Badrish Dutt, who was found dead with his female friend in a Gurgaon flat, was part of the team that was investigating betting in the ongoing Indian Premier League, reports said on Thursday.
The revelation gains importance as it comes on a day when the Special Cell of the Delhi Police – the unit to which Badrish Dutt belonged – arrested Rajasthan Royals pace spearhead S Sreesanth and two other players - Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila on charges of spot-fixing.
Dutt and his friend Geeta Sharma were found dead at her flat in Ardee City in Gurgaon on May 11. The two had been living together for the past one year. As per reports, the relationship between the inspector working with the anti-terror wing and Geeta Sharma, a private detective, was not "cordial" and was turning "sour" with the passage of time.
45-year-old Dutt had joined the Delhi Police in 1991 and was one of the few personnel inducted into the Special Cell in 1994 when the elite unit was formed. He was considered a "master investigator" by his superiors.
Gurgaon police has claimed that Dutt had shot his live-in partner and then killed himself using his service revolver.
Dr Deepak Mathur, who conducted the post-mortem, said both had died almost the same time during the intervening night of Friday-Saturday last week.
It appears that Dutt used his official weapon of 9 MM bore to fire two rounds, he said.
While one bullet had entered from Dutt`s right temple and had exited from the left side, another bullet had entered from the back of Sharma`s head, Mathur said, adding that both were killed instantly.
No other wounds were found on the bodies, he said.
It was "contact range" killing wherein the bullets had been fired by touching the skin of the two, Mathur added. In contact range killing, the victim does not survive even for a minute.
Badrish Dutt’s family has demanded a CBI probe.
