Bengaluru: In a major breakthrough in probe into Nandita death case, the forensic experts have upheld the authenticity of the death note found in her note book.
The handwriting analysis of the suicide note has found that it was in fact Nandita’s writing, according to top sources in the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) here.
The FSL’s question document division has come to this conclusion and the report is expected to be submitted on Monday, according to sources.
Nandita, a Class 8 girl from Thirthahalli died at a private hospital in Manipal on October 31, after she allegedly consumed poison.
The parents of the girl and Sangh Parivar complained that she was allegedly abducted and poisoned by three men belonging to a different community.
However, the death note, which was later found by the police, suggested that she had decided to end her life. The family contended that the death note found by the police in one of the girl’s notebooks was fake.
The sources said the report would be submitted to the CID officials for further investigation. While the post-mortem report revealed that the victim was not sexually assaulted, the CID was waiting for the handwriting expert’s opinion.
A senior CID official, who is heading the investigation, said he had not seen the report and that he would not be able to say anything now.
“It could also have been sent to the jurisdictional police directly,” he added.
However, the local police said they had no role to play, as the case had been handed over to the CID.
