CBI official Suresh Kumar Palsania, who investigated the 2G spectrum scam, died here late on Wednesday night. A 1996 batch IPS officer from the Orissa cadre, Palsania was suffering from lukaemia and was admitted to a hospital in Saket in New Delhi. He was the chief investigating officer who steered the investigations into the telecommunications scam, which led to the arrest of high-profile politicians and bureaucrats, including former Telecom Minister A Raja.
Hailing from Rajasthan, Palsania was an engineering graduate and was posted as Deputy Inspector General with the CBI. He was a recipient of this year's Police Medal for meritorious service announced on Republic Day.
