Doon MLA’s handwriting matches with nursing home records


In a development that signals fresh trouble for the Doon MLA from Himachal Pradesh, Ram Kumar Chaudhary, his handwriting has matched with the records of a Chandigarh-based nursing home where he had accompanied the 24-year-old Hoshiarpur girl, Jyoti Kumari, to abort her baby before allegedly murdering her in league with other accomplices.

According to police, the FSL report from Madhuban has confirmed that Chaudhary along with the girl went to Jindal nursing home and signed the papers for her abortion. Sources said this was clinching evidence against the MLA who is currently in judicial custody along with his accomplices, Gurmeet, Dharampal, Tilak Raj and Paramjeet.

Sources said the matching of the handwriting samples would make the police case strong against Chaudhary whose cell phone had already been tracked to the area where the girl was found murdered in Sector 21 in the city on November 22 last year. Police have also made the staff of the Jindal nursing home the witnesses in the case.

As per sources, Chaudhary had visited the nursing home to abort the baby of the girl and had earlier written his name as Ram. But some of the hospital documents have been found to be overwritten. For checking whether overwriting was done by the MLA or any other person, the police will get his specimen signatures again on Tuesday.

According to police officials, Commissioner (Panchkula-Ambala range) Rajbir Deswal has constituted a special investigation team (SIT) to find out whether the documents at the health institute were overwritten by the MLA or any other person. The SIT is headed by Deputy Commissioner (Panchkula) Ashwin Shenvi, who will be assisted in the investigation by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Naraingarh, Suresh Kaushik, and Assistant Commissioner of police Virendar Singh.

Sources said the SIT had re-visited the spot where the girl was found murdered and was also vetting the chargesheet which had been readied.
