Mr. Vajpayee said in a statement: "Like all right-thinking Indians, I am shocked and saddened by the murder of Satyendra Dubey, an upright and dedicated officer working with NHAI, who was killed recently in Gaya, Bihar."
"The case has been handed over to the CBI. Those responsible for his death, wherever they may be, will not be spared," he said in his first public reaction to the murder of Dubey, a Kanpur IIT graduate and NHAI project manager, while sending his condolences to the bereaved family.
Pointing out that the National Highways project was a "great dream" not merely for him but for the entire nation, he said, "Thanks to the efforts of talented engineers like Dubey, it has made remarkable progress already and my Government is committed to ensuring that those working on it complete it without any fear."
Mr. Vajpayee said the outpouring of sympathy for Dubey from across the world showed that Indians, wherever they were, had a commitment to honesty and transparency and a significant stake in the country's future.
Recalling his recent visit to the Kanpur IIT, the Prime Minister said: "It was inspiring to see the talent, sense of hope and commitment among the students and the faculty. We can't let criminals or vested interests weaken that spirit."
