New Delhi, March 11: Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Monday said the alleged suicide in the Tihar Jail by the main accused in the Delhi gang-rape was a “major lapse”.
“I agree… It must be a major lapse… It is a gave incident, it is not a
small incident,” Shinde told reporters.
But the minister said he won’t come to any conclusion till a magisterial
probe ordered into the suicide gets over.
“I can’t come to a conclusion now… Let us wait… The details would come (out) in the magisterial inquiry,” said Shinde.
Ram Singh, 35, believed to be the mastermind of the Dec 16 gang-rape, reportedly committed suicide in the Tihar Jail here Monday morning, police said. His family alleged he was murdered.
