NHRC to seek report on Nanda driver’s death from police

New Delhi, June 18 (Calcutta Tube) Taking cognisance of the mysterious death of prominent industrialist Anil Nanda’s driver, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Friday said it will seek an investigative report on it from the Delhi Police.

‘We are planning to send a notice in this regard to the Delhi Police,’ an NHRC spokesperson told IANS.

The NHRC was contacted by driver Janeshwar Sharma’s family members.

Sharma, 41 and a former armyman, was admitted to the Safdarjung Hospital June 9 with 80 percent burns and died a week later on June 15.

No one has been arrested so far even as a case of murder was registered by the police.

Sharma’s brother Yogesh Friday said: ‘The police are not doing anything because of political reasons.’

He said industrialist Nanda was being favoured. ‘I want life imprisonment for the accused persons,’ Yogesh told reporters.

Before his death in an interview to CNN-IBN, Sharma said he was being forced by Nanda’s associates to tail the industrialist’s business partner. He said he had protested and was threatened with removal from service.
