Lucknow: The CBI has carried out searches at the office of a senior official of Uttar Pradesh Prisons Department looking for the alleged suicide note recovered from
the then Deputy CMO YS Sachan who was found dead inside jail premises in mysterious circumstances.
A team of senior CBI officials reached the office of
Inspector General VK Gupta searching for the "original"
suicide note allegedly recovered from Sachan whose body was
found inside the toilet of Lucknow district jail hospital on
the night of June 22.
The agency has a photocopy of the alleged suicide note
but it was looking for the original draft to carry forward its
forensic probe in the mysterious death of Sachan, arrested for
being named as the key conspirator in the murders of two Chief
Medical Officers and under charges of financial irregularities
in UP`s NRHM scam, agency sources said.
However, the team which was there in the office for
nearly half an hour could not get the note, CBI sources said.
Later, speaking to a news agency over phone, Inspector General VK
Gupta said the team had come looking for the original suicide
note which was discovered from Sachan but since it was not
with him, he could not provide it.
"Sachan had written a note saying he was innocent and
had no complaints against any jail official or the convict
in jail or any of his family members. This was the only text
of that thing. The photocopy of this CBI already has. They
have matched the handwriting as well," Gupta said.
He said, "On day one we had said he had committed
suicide. When we are saying, government is saying he had
committed suicide. Why are we going to hold any document?"
"They came and they did not find anything incriminatory.
They gave this in writing that they did not find anything," he
