A 26-year-old radiology intern was found dead today with his throat slit at the St. Stephen’s hospital in Tis Hazari here, with the police suspecting he might have been killed by a colleague.
The body of Sashwat Pandey, a resident of Allahabad, was found lying this morning in the retiring room of doctors adjacent to the duty room at the hospital, they said.
“His throat was found slit with a surgical blade. As per the preliminary investigation, the suspect appears to be a fellow doctor and an acquaintance of the deceased,” a senior police official said.
Forensic officials and the crime team are currently investigating, he said.
