New Delhi: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) official Suresh Kumar Palsania, who meticulously investigated the 2G spectrum scam, died on Wednesday night due to a leukemia, which was diagnosed about fortnight ago. The 44-year-old Palsania, who was termed as one of the bright officers of the agency, died at a private hospital in South Delhi. Hailing from Rajasthan, Palsania was a 1996 batch IPS officer of Odhisa cadre and was working with the CBI since 2006.
An engineering graduate, Palsania, who was posted as Deputy Inspector General with the CBI, was a recipient of this year's Police Medal for meritorious service announced on the Republic day. CBI Director AP Singh, who is at present in Rome for Interpol Conference, expressed shock over the sad demise of Palsania. "We are all crushed and shocked. He was one of the best officers of the CBI," Singh said.
