A controversy raged on Wednesday (December 26) over the cause of death of Constable Subhash Tomar during violent demonstrations last Sunday with eyewitnesses and a government hospital claiming there were no injuries on his person while the post mortem report contradicted these versions. The Delhi Police late in the evening released excerpts of report of the post mortem done by a Board of Doctors in the government Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) hospital, where he died on Tuesday (December 25). Following contradictory versions, Delhi Police asked its rime Branch to investigate the case in which murder charges have been invoked. Earlier, eight persons, including an activist of Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were arrested on Monday on charges of attempt to murder. Following the claims of the eye-witnesses, AAP demanded sacking of Commissioner Kumar alleging that police was misleading people by arresting eight "innocent youth" in connection with the incident.
