New Delhi: The suicide note of Sadiq
Batcha, a close aide of 2G scam accused and former Telecom
Minister A Raja, was in his own handwriting and there were no
signs that he was forced to write it, according to a forensic
report.
The CBI had handed over the suicide note to General
Examiner of Questioned Documents (GEQD) which opined that the
suicide note was in his own handwriting and it was not forced,
official sources said here today.



The CBI has, for cross checking, roped in a team of
doctors from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS)
to examine the viscera and post mortem details of Batcha to
rule out any "foul play" in his death.
The agency has started its investigations under
Section 174 of the CrPC in the mysterious death of Batcha who
was found hanging at his home in Chennai on March 16. The
section allows an investigating agency to probe cases of
unnatural death.



38-year-old Batcha was quizzed by CBI in connection
with 2G scam. His wife had claimed he committed suicide as he
was unable to cope with the pressure of the probe.
