Balabhaskar's death: HC interferes, Crime branch told to submit report within two days

KOCHI: Kerala High court has given instruction to the Crime Branch team, investigating the late violinist Balabhaskar’s death, to submit a report on its inferences regarding the mystery behind his death.
The court was considering the bail plea of the accused in the Thiruvananthapuram airport gold smuggling case on Tuesday.
The court made it clear that the report to be submitted by the Crime branch team should have clarifications on the role of the Balabhaskar’s aides Prakashan Thampi and Vishnu in his death that appeared to be an accidental case.
Meanwhile, the Crime Branch team has submitted in the court that all enigmas surrounding the case will be cleared within a week. Though the team has some clarity on the person who was driving the car at the time of the accident, it has gone for the forensic examination of the seat belt to confirm this. The Crime branch has also collected the blood samples of driver Arjun and Balabhaskar’s parents for this purpose.

It had already sent the blood stains at the driving seat for examination. The DNA test of the blood samples and hair strands at the driver’s seat will give a clear picture on the person who was at the driver’s seat.

The nature of the injuries sustained by Arjun also points fingers at him. This will be scientifically weighed against the Arjun’s statement that he was not driving the car, before a conclusion is arrived at.
