Lucknow: City police will send the revolver of senior IAS Harminder Raj Singh for forensic test to a science laboratory, a senior officer said here on Thursday.

"The Lucknow Police had been directed to send the revolver of Singh to science laboratory for forensic test," Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) A K Jain told reporters here.

He said that handwash sample of Singh would also be send for laboratory testing.

Singh, who headed the housing department as the Principal Secretary, allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself with his licenced revolver at his Vikramaditya Marg official residence on the intervening night of November 28 and 29.

Terming it to be a "clear-cut case of suicide" police had already closed the case.

"As per the investigations carried out by the Lucknow Police, senior IAS officer heading Housing department Harminder Raj Singh's case is that of clear-cut suicide," Jain had earlier said.

He said that during investigation nothing fishy was found on the spot and no one, including family members, raised any suspicion.

The ADG, however, said that if any complaint was received from the family of the IAS, then a case would be lodged.

"As of now nothing in writing has been received," he said.
