Manipur student’s death should be under CBI probe: Uttar Pradesh Govt


Imphal, February 3, 2018: Uttar Pradesh government recommends CBI probe into Manipur student Pravish Chanam's unnatural death in Noida. Chanam had reportedly gone to attend international artists Chainsmokers' concert on September 8, 2017 in Expo Mart, Greater Noida.

His body was found the next day in Noida itself.

The investigations revealed that Pravish did not disappear mysteriously, but was rushed to the district hospital by the event organizer of the Chainsmokers concert. Dr Amit, who was deployed at the Expo Mart that night said that Pravish had consumed liquor and was found unconscious at 9.30 pm.

"Some guards brought him to the medical camp at Expo Mart. His heartbeat was rapid and he was not in his senses. There was no relative or any known person with him. We sent him to the district hospital in Sector 30 in an ambulance at that time," Dr. Amit said.

Pravish was brought to the district hospital by 10.30 pm.

The student was given medicines and showed restlessness at frequent intervals.

At 6.30 am on September 9, Pravish left the hospital premises without telling anyone.

However, around 5pm, his body was found near the car market in Nithari.

According to a rickshaw-puller and two other persons, Chanam had told them that a Royal Enfield bullet had hit him when they asked him about his condition.
