Haridwar: The much awaited viscera test report of Swami Nigamananda has confirmed that the seer had not died due to poisoning.

Even though the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which is probing into Swami Nigamananda death case has remained tight-lipped on the issue but has confirmed receiving the viscera test report.

After getting this report, the CBI has decided to start the fresh investigations in the case.

After four months of fasting for saving river Ganga, Swami Nigamananda Saraswati died on June 13, 2011 at Jolly Grant Himalayan Institute Hospital in Dehradun. Swami Nigamanand, 34, had been fasting for 115 days in Haridwar.

The seer, a member of Matri Sadan, was protesting against the illegal mining that is polluting the holy river. He had started his fast on February 19 this year. On April 27, his health deteriorated which forced the authorities to admit him in the district hospital.

The Swami went into coma and had to be admitted in a extremely critical condition to the Jolly Grant Hospital in Dehradun on April 27, 2011.

The CBI had already registered a case against the then Haridwar Hospital CMS P K Bhatnagar, and Gyanesh Kumar, owner of the Himalaya Stone Crusher after holding them as prime accused in the Nigamanand’s death case. They have also registered cases against four others in this connection.

On Matri Sadan Ashram request, the district administration had sent the viscera for lab test at Central Forensic Laboratory.
