Parbhani blast – Popular front of India and SDPI demands to probe the case by CBI

On February 1st 2015, Atul Bhagwanrao Waghmare (29 years), a chemical engineer, employed with Yogeshwari Polytechnic College as professor in Ambejogai, dist. Beed, was found dead in a mysterious condition with his charred body in an apartment located in Anand Nagar on Basmat Road of Parbhani. He was resident of Pathri taluka of Parbhani.

The witnesses claimed to have heard loud explosion from the apartment with smoke coming out of it and when police entered inside they found windows were broken due to explosion and a dead body was lying on the floor. Police later on confirmed the identity of the body to be of Waghmare. “The body was handed over to the family on Sunday evening. We are awaiting the autopsy report and suspect that he died of burn injuries. We have also studied the background of the deceased and there are bleak chances of terror angle in the incident. There is a possibility that he may have committed suicide but we are probing all the angles.” Additional superintendent of police Niyati Thakar said.

“The forensic reports have concluded that the chemical content that fuelled the fire was petroleum hydrocarbons. We are awaiting chemical analysis and histopathology reports. The findings leave less scope for any terror angle,” and said that waghmare was depressed and hence are suspecting it to be the more probable case of suicide.” Special inspector general of police (Aurangabad range) Amitesh kumar said.
Although investigation team has ruled out possibility of terror angle but Waghmare’s unreported absence from the college since last 16 days has created a suspicious doubt in the case.

College principal Raman Deshpande told that “Atul Waghmare had joined the institute as a lecturer on 16 August, 2014 and was very normal and cooperative with the students. We never felt that he was upset about anything nor did he skip college without informing us. He did not report to the college since January 16 and all our efforts to contact him failed as he had switched off his cell phone.”
