A day after poet-lyricist Santosh Anand’s son and daughter-in-law allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a train in Mathura, their family members on Thursday demanded a thorough probe by CBI into the case.
Sankalp was working as a lecturer at the National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science in Rohini, which comes under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Home Affairs.
Police recovered a 10-page suicide note from Sankalp’s car which was parked near the railway track.
The family members of the deceased Sankalp have alleged that he was being “pressurised by his seniors” to commit a fraud from a recently allocated development fund worth Rs 250 crore, which was also mentioned in his suicide note.
“He led a very simple life and never showed any signs that he was under any sort of pressure. But from the suicide note it seems that he was under tremendous pressure to commit something illegal,” said Yatharth Sharma, Sankalp’s cousin.
Sankalp (38), along with his wife Naresh Nandini (34) and daughter Ridhima, jumped in front of a train in Mathura yesterday. While the couple died on the spot, their seven-year-old daughter suffered serious injuries and has been admitted to a hospital.
Sankalp’s father and famous Bollywood poet-lyricist Santosh Anand, who has several hit songs to his credit including ‘Main Na Bhoolunga’ from the movie ‘Roti Kapda aur Makan’, has also sought an enquiry into the matter.
A case in the matter has been registered at the Mathura police station.
