A board of doctors has conducted post-mortem on the body of the 25-year-old man who allegedly committed suicide at Vijay Vihar police station in Outer Delhi in the early hours of Tuesday. A magisterial inquiry into the incident is under way.

It is learnt that the Metropolitan Magistrate, under whom the inquiry is being carried out, directed the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital authorities to constitute a board of doctors to conduct the post-mortem. The doctors also visited the police station with a view to get a clear picture of where exactly Vikas allegedly hanged himself.

According to the police, Vikas hanged himself from a window latch in a first-floor room of the police station building. Vikas had on Monday night called up the Police Control Room seeking intervention in a fight between him and one Kewal, husband of a woman he purportedly had a relationship for the past eight years. Both the parties were taken to the police station, following which the investigating officer took Kewal to his house to record his wife's statement as part of the preliminary inquiry.

The same officer was assigned another distress call a couple of hours later. He was attending to that call when Vikas allegedly took the extreme step.
