New Delhi, July 9 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday said that he has assured the family members of journalist Akshay Singh of an unbiased investigation.
“This family has lost everything. I assured the family of an unbiased investigation into his death. I will do whatever to reduce their pain. I offered them jobs in the city and other help,” Chouhan told the media.
“It is my life’s mission to find out the truth, which is why I sent [Akshay Singh’s] viscera samples to AIIMS,” he added.
Akshay Singh, a journalist working for a leading Delhi-based news channel, on Saturday suddenly took ill and died after having interviewed parents of a girl who had been found dead near railway tracks, after her name figured in the Vyapam scam.
The journalist was rushed to the civil hospital and later to a private hospital, but doctors failed to revive him. From there he was taken to another hospital in nearby Dahod in Gujarat, where he was declared brought dead. (ANI)
