Rourkela police ASI death: Family rejects postmortem report, seeks CBI probe

Bhubaneswar: The family members of police ASI Alisa Narmi Lugun, who died under mysterious circumstances in Odisha’s Rourkela city on October 1, rejected the findings of the postmortem today.

The family members of the deceased Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of police, including her husband Sanjay Lakra and brother Sushant Mund, sought a CBI probe into the incident.

The postmortem report suggested that the woman ASI had died due to excited delirium, a symptom characterized by severe anxiety and increased hormone secretion from the adrenal gland for which breathlessness develops, claimed the police.

“The doctor clearly mentioned in the postmortem report that there was no attack on the ASI,” claimed Rourkela SP Mitrabhanu Mahapatra while disclosing the postmortem report on Oct 21.

The deceased ASI’s husband today claimed that excited delirium has not been recognized as a major health complication by the WHO and many other reputed agencies.

“Excited delirium is many seen in people having acute drug intoxication at the time of the incident. The woman ASI had no major health complications. So, we reject the findings of the postmortem report,” he said.

The postmortem report has mentioned about swelling in her right cheek and a blood clot on her body. But, the report did say anything regarding the causes behind these two things, said the deceased ASI’s husband.

“We reject the findings of the postmortem report. We are not happy with the police investigation. We are seeking a CBI probe into the incident. We will continue our fight to give justice to the deceased police ASI,” he added.

The deceased ASI’s brother said they have raised as many as 10 queries regarding the postmortem report. “We are seeking satisfactory answers to these 10 queries from Rourkela SP. An eye witness told us that the woman police ASI was surrounded and assaulted by some people during a group clash just before her death. We suspect foul play in the incident,” he added.

Lugun, an ASI of Udit Nagar police in Rourkela, along with a few other police personnel rushed to the Ring Road area in the Steel City to restore the law and order in the wake of a group clash in the evening hours of October 1.

Two groups reportedly clashed in the Ring Road area following a road mishap involving a passenger bus and a car in the locality.

The female ASI collapsed while she was trying to bring the situation under control. She was immediately rushed to private hospital, where doctors declared her dead on arrival, sources said.
