Two days after his death in Lucknow jail premises, body of Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Y S Sachan was cremated here at electric crematorium on Friday evening amid police security.

Till afternoon, the family members were adamant on waiting for the government’s order for transfer of the investigation of Dr Sachan’s mysterious death to CBI. But as they did not receive any positive response from the government, and the Allahabad High Court fixed hearing of a petition for CBI inquiry to July 18, they decided to cremate the body.

The deceased’s family had on Thursday decided not to cremate the body till the state government ordered the transfer of the case to CBI. Dr Sachan’s wife Malti too had submitted an affidavit in the Allahabad High Court elaborating on the sequence of the incidents. Till 3:30 pm today, the family members were telling the media the body will not be cremated. An air-conditioned chamber was also brought and the body was placed into it in a bid to preserve it for long.
