After Indian cyber 'expert' identifying himself from the name Syed Shuja made evidence-less allegations, one of which was that BJP senior leader from Maharashtra Gopinath Munde who died in a car accident was in fact 'murdered' as he was going to 'expose' the government of their deeds. 

Republic on Tuesday got access to the autopsy report of deceased leader, Gopinath Munde from AIIMS that reaffirm that the cause of death is 'shock and hemorrhage consequent upon blunt antemortem injuries to the neck and liver' 

The post-mortem AIIMS report stated: 

"This case is 'shock and hemorrhage consequent upon blunt antemortem injuries to the neck and liver'. These types of injuries are commonly seen in road traffic accidents"

Prior to this, Republic TV on Monday spoke exclusively to Dr. Sudhir Gupta, head of forensic medicine at AIIMS, who was at the head of the board that conducted Munde's autopsy clarified that homicide had been ruled out and that it had been discussed with the Delhi police and CBI. 

He said, "The post-mortem, in this case, has been conducted by a medical board, headed by me and three other doctors. It was attended by the then Health Minister, the full cabinet was present there. We had found an elbow excel joint fracture it the post-mortem, with a posterior neck defect. This elbow excel joint fracture is not possible in any case of homicide, hence it was ruled out at the very beginning. it could only be possible in the case of an accident when the high momentum is being applied to the neck. This has been discussed properly in a complete way with Delhi police and a large board had been constituted by the CBI."

The 'hacker' made more outlandish claims in a cloak and dagger manner:  

  • Lok Sabha elections of 2014 were rigged, and that Congress lost 201 seats in 2014 due to tampering. 
  • BJP had got access to low-frequency signals to hack EVMs.
  • BJP would have won Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh elections if Shuja's team hadn't intercepted the BJP attempts to hack the transmissions in these states.
  • Slain journalist Gauri Lankesh was killed for agreeing to run the story on EVM hacking. 
  • The self-proclaimed hacker said that apart from BJP,  parties like Arvind Kejriwal's AAP, Akhilesh Yadav's SP and Mayawati's BSP too approached him to know if EVM's could be hacked. 
  • He claimed to be seeking political asylum in the United States as he feels threatened in the country after a few of his team members were killed.
