Attack on Lalu's car not inside hospital premises: Report

May 05, 2005 22:16 IST

A preliminary report by the Gujarat Directorate of Forensic Science on Wednesday indicated no attack took place on the car carrying Railways Minister Lalu Prasad in the premises of the SSG hospital, where he had gone to visit injured passengers of the Sabarmati Express mishap.

The directorate, in its report sent to the Vadodara police in connection with the alleged attack on April 21, said the glass of the rear side of the car was not broken within the hospital premises.

Confirming they had received this report, Vadodara police commissioner Deepak Swarup said the report also mentioned that television footage did not show any stone or hard objects being thrown at the car.

According to the report, only water pouches were seen thrown, Swarup said.

Microscopic examination of the premises of the SSG hospital, did not reveal any broken glass pieces which could indicate that the car was attacked inside the hospital.

The Forensic Science Laboratory is still conducting investigations on the car, which was taken to Gandhinagar last week for examination.

Prasad had demanded the removal of the Narendra Modi government alleging the attack on him was planned to eliminate him.

Sub: Lalu attack not inside hospital

It was obviously a cheap political stunt to divert attention from the accident. It worked.
