The CBI is likely to file a closure report in the alleged suicide of Sadiq Batcha, a close aide of the former Telecom Minister and an accused in the 2G case A. Raja, as it did not find anything suspicious.

Batcha was found hanging in his house at Teynampet in south Chennai by his wife and driver, nearly a month after Mr. Raja's arrest in the 2G case.

The agency has used the services of forensic experts from the AIIMS to detect whether Batcha was killed but even after detailed examination, sleuths have not found anything which can substantiate the murder hypothesis, CBI sources said.

Batcha had left a suicide note stating that he was “embarrassed” by the raids of various enforcement agencies and the extensive media coverage of them. The agency concluded that the suicide note was in his own handwriting.
