Officials stated on Sunday that a top Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) scientist who was arrested for “placing explosives” inside the Rohini district court tried to commit suicide by ingesting hand wash in a police detention lavatory.

According to them, the accused, Bharat Bhushan Kataria (47), is receiving treatment at AIIMS and is in good health.

The DRDO scientist was arrested on December 9 for reportedly putting an IED in a tiffin box inside the Rohini court with the purpose to kill his neighbour, who had filed multiple complaints against him and was present on court grounds that day.

On Friday, the accused was questioned by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police and then detained on the same day. Since then, he has been in police custody and is being interrogated, according to the police.

He was found unconscious in a restroom on Saturday night after reportedly consuming liquid hand wash. When questioned, he stated that he had been vomiting and had a stomach ache. According to a senior police officer, he was transported to Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital and then directed to AIIMS.

“When police arrived at the hospital to check on him, he told them he hadn’t eaten anything. However, when we spoke with the medics, they said he had consumed hand soap “he stated

“He is receiving treatment at AIIMS and is in perfect health. His vital signs are all normal. He will be checked by a top doctor tomorrow (Monday), and he is likely to be discharged. He’ll be questioned soon “Added the officer.

According to the officer, the accused had planned ahead of time how he would avoid being questioned if he was apprehended.

In courtroom 102, an IED planted by Bharat Bhushan Kataria sparked a low-intensity explosion. The blast injured Naib Court head constable Rajeev.

According to the authorities, the IED was not correctly built, and just the detonator exploded.
