That is very much unfortunate, Batcha simply had TOO MUCH of information that proved to be fatal for him.. and we live in a country where money and power can do anything and murder can be made look like suicide..!!

Whether Batcha committed suicide or whether he was murdered is one issue. Another issue is that CBI did not enquire him till now.

I am sure JPC and JAC(if it is in their purview) will look at this aspect and instruct CBI accordingly.
