Sonali Phogat’s daughter demands CBI probe into alleged murder stating that the family is not satisfied with the probe conducted by the Goa Police.
Hisar: Deceased BJP leader Sonali Phogat’s daughter Yashodhara Phogat on Tuesday demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the alleged murder of her mother while also stating that the family is not satisfied with the probe conducted by the Goa Police.
She said that Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had assured of a CBI investigation into the case. The family of Sonali Phogat had met Khattar on August 27, after which the Chief Minister had assured of a CBI probe into the case.
However, according to the deceased BJP leader’s daughter, “no action has been taken as of yet”.
Speaking to ANI, Yashodhara said, “I demand a CBI probe as I’m not satisfied with the current probe. No action is being taken. The accused have been kept in Goa, they have yet not revealed their motive (behind the murder), so what are the police doing? It’s about justice for my mother, we won’t stand back until there is a CBI investigation. CM (of Haryana) said that CBI probe will happen but no action has been taken as of yet.”
She claimed that the murder of her mother “was planned”.
“My mother had told me that there would be shooting for nearly one week in Goa. But it comes to the fore that the resort was booked only for two days. It suggests that it was a planned murder,” she said.
Sonali Phogat’s aunt, Manoj PhogatManoj Phogat said that the family had no information about the arrival of the Goa Police to Haryana for investigation, and had only come to know about it through the media.
“We do not know officially when the Goa Police will come. We are getting information about their arrival from the media. Officially, it is the local police who inform us about the arrival, but we have not been informed yet. The local police should have come earlier,” she said.
