HC Deb 23 March 1987 vol 113 c11W
Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for reports from the appropriate chief constables as to progress with their inquiries into the deaths near Bristol of Mr. Vimal Dajibhai and Mr. Ashad Sharif and the disappearance in Derbyshire of Mr. Avtar Singh-Gida and into any link between the three incidents; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

The Avon and Somerset police have completed their inquiries into the deaths of Mr. Dajibhai and Mr. Sharif. The coroner recorded an open verdict in the case of Mr. Dajibhai and a verdict of suicide in the case of Mr. Sharif. I understand from the chief constable of Derbyshire that the police investigation into Mr. SinghGida's disappearance is continuing. Other than that Mr. Dajibhai and Mr. Sharif were employed in different parts of the Marconi company and that Mr. Dajibhai and Mr. Singh-Gida probably knew each other when at Loughborough university together in 1979, there is at present no evidence of to link the three cases.
