Six IAF Officers Booked After Trainee Cadet Found Hanging In Bengaluru


Six Indian Air Force officers have been accused of murder after a trainee cadet was discovered hanging after a court of inquiry was established, according to a police officer. Ankit Jha (27) was discovered hanging in one of the rooms of the Air Force Technical College, according to authorities (AFTC).

Police believed the death occurred four or five days earlier.

On Saturday, the police launched a case against six police officials at Gangammana Gudi police station based on his brother Aman Jha's complaint. Aman further claimed in his complaint that attempts were made to tamper with the evidence, claiming that people from the AFTC were present at the police station at 4.30 a.m. on Saturday with a piece of evidence he was also looking for.

He even pondered how AFTC learned about his presence in the police station in the wee morning and arrived there.

"The cause of death has yet to be determined. Our investigations are underway. Jha was a trainee cadet who was discovered hanging in one of the AFTC chambers "According to a top police officer, "The officers named in the complaint have not been arrested, but the Indian Air Force has promised us of their full cooperation," the official stated.

He also stated that they are awaiting the post-mortem results before proceeding with the inquiry.
