Social media users are making different claims upon the death of engineering student Nishank Rathore in Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh. Some are calling it a murder, while some have claimed to have a communal angle behind it.

Meanwhile, BJP MP from Kaushambi, UP Vinod Sonkar wrote – “Once again there has been a Hindu murder over ‘Sir Tan Se Juda’. But till now no Ashraf Muslim has issued a fatwa against ‘Sir Tan Se Juda’. These Ashraf Mullah-Maulana wants to make this country Darul-Islam. If Hindus still do not wake up then the future is in danger. #NishankRathore #Bhopal”

News Nation’s journalist Shubham Tripathi, using abusive words on this matter, wrote – ” Now where are the brothers of freedom of expression? Nishank’s body was found on a railway track in Bhopal Earlier this message was sent to his father Just before that this story was posted on Nishank’s Instagram. Kanhaiyalal, after Umesh Kolhe #NishankRathore

At the same time, many other users have also shared posts on this matter.

Fact Check:

Whether Nishank was murdered or he committed suicide, this incident was a matter of trouble for the police. The responsibility of investigating the incident was handed over to the SIT. The SIT investigated all aspects of the case. The forensic report of Bhopal AIIMS and the post-mortem examination of Nishank revealed that Nishank was not murdered but died after being hit by a train.

According to an article of news 18. com, the forensic investigation of Bhopal AIIMS has not found evidence of Nishank’s murder. Further, it was mentioned in the report, ” In the post-mortem report of the forensic expert, this case has been told of suicide. Trapped in the wheels of the train, Nishank was dragged for 5 to 6 feet due to excessive bleeding, he died on the spot.”

At the same time, The SIT has made another disclosure that Nishank had taken loans online. The pressure on him to repay the loan was high. In this context, Navbharat Times has published news with the headlines- “Nishank Rathore Death Case: ‘Engineering student commits suicide under debt pressure’, claims SIT”.

Conclusion:

After the investigation of the SIT and the forensic report, it is clear that Nishank was not murdered but committed suicide. Hence, the claim of social media users that Nishank was murdered and giving him a communal angle is false.
