Thomas's family members have alleged that his colleagues tried to avoid a post-mortem examination. But Coimbatore city police commissioner A K Viswanathan said it was the relatives who initially tried to avoid an autopsy. "But we insisted on conducting the examination as is mandatory under the law," he said.
"We have questioned his fellow workers several times but nothing concrete has emerged. We have no substantial evidence at the moment, but are not ruling out anything," said Viswanathan.
"Nothing has come to our knowledge about any kind of irregularity in the project, there is nothing on record. ICT has limited role in the project... we only monitor the quality of work done — no agreement, no bills or any payment," said Suresh Kumar Puri, one of the presidents of the consultant company under which the ICT staff at Coimbatore function.
Ganesh Kumar, a senior NHAI engineer who has been deputed to oversee the project, said in such BOT projects, the money comes from the contractor and not from the government. "The investigation team contacted me seeking details about the functioning of such projects," he said, adding that he has not found anything to indicate professional reasons behind the death.
"I know nothing can bring back my father, but I want to make sure that the culprits are brought to justice. I will fight to the end to see that happen," said Suraj.
