Patna: Police in Patna are trying to piece together the cause of the death of 52-year old Avinash Kumar Singh who was found critically injured after falling from his motorcycle under the Bailey Road Flyover between pillar numbers 3 and 4.

The incident occurred around 8:00 pm on Monday night when people found Avinash, the son of retired IAS officer Shivpujan Singh, covered in blood under the Bailey Road flyover. He was rushed to a nearby private hospital where he died while being treated for his injuries.

Eyewitnesses in the area told the police of hearing gunshots but the police did not file any empty cartridge from the area.

Police said the real cause of Avinash's death would be known only after the autopsy is completed though it appeared the death was the result of an accident.

"It may be that the accident was staged to settle old enmity since Avinash ran a paint shop at the Chandan Deep Apartments on Ara Garden intersection however, until the investigation is complete, all these are only guesses," said City Superintendent of Police (SP-West) Ravindra Kumar adding footage of CCTVs in the area are being examined to get to the bottom of the case.
