Mr. Misra alleged that he was poisoned with arsenic trioxide on May 23, 2017, during a promotion interview at ISRO Headquarters located in Bengaluru.
The scientist claimed that “Fatal dose was probably mixed” in his Snacks. He is presently working as Senior Advisor at ISRO and is retiring at the end of this month.
In a Facebook post Titled ‘Long Kept Secret,’ Mr. Sinha stated that he was alerted by home security personnel of poisoning and they asked the doctors to focus on the possible remedy.
