Nuclear scientist Mohammed Mustafa, 24, was found dead in his quarters at Kalpakkam, around 80 km from Chennai, with his wrists slashed on Apr 23, police said. A police official said: “We found Mustafa with his wrists slashed. We were called in when Mustafa’s roommate was not able to open the door as it was locked from inside.” The police broke open the lock and went inside the quarters to find Mustafa dead.
“We have recovered a note purportedly written by Mustafa stating that nobody is responsible for his death,” the police official said. Mustafa, a scientific assistant-B grade, had joined Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) a year back, had undergone one year training and had been posted at Kalpakkam Reprocessing Plant (KARP). He was confirmed in his post only two months back.
