Rabindra K. "Robbie" Gupta, a retired city planner and Maryland Historical Society security guard who was an expert on Francis Scott Key's original manuscript of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and enjoyed sharing his knowledge with museum visitors, died of a stroke Friday at Union Memorial Hospital. The North Baltimore resident was 70. Mr. Gupta, who was born and raised in New Delhi, was also educated in his native India. "He earned two bachelor's degrees and two master's degrees from universities in India, but the master's he was most proud of was the one in city planning from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design in 1962," said his son, Andrew K. Gupta of Leesburg, Va. Mr. Gupta left India in 1960 to study at Harvard University.

Baltimore police said they are investigating the death of a Montgomery County man pulled from the Inner Harbor early Wednesday as suspicious, and detectives are continuing to interview potential witnesses in the case. The man was identified yesterday as Ankush Gupta, 22, who lived in Boyds, near Germantown. A close friend who was with him shortly before he died said the pair and three other friends had stopped at the Inner Harbor on their way back from a day trip to New York City. In an interview yesterday, the 23-year-old friend - who declined to be identified because of concerns about his safety - said he thinks that Gupta was pushed into the water, although he did not see it happen.
