The Central Bureau of Investigation was given the investigation into the passing of Haryana BJP leader and social media influencer Sonali Phogat by the government (CBI).
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been given the go-ahead by the Union government to assume charge of the Sonali Phogat murder investigation. According to sources, the investigation agency would file a FIR in the case soon.
This development occurs after Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant requested a CBI investigation in a letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
Sonali Phogat’s body had numerous “blunt injuries,” according to the autopsy. Phogat was allegedly “forcefully drugged by her two associates,” according to the Goa Police.
Five people have been detained in connection with the case thus far, including Sudhir Sangwan, her personal assistant, and Sukhwinder Singh, one of his associates.
In addition, Edwin Nunes, the proprietor of the renowned Curlies where Phogat was spotted having a good time just before she was killed, along with two other people, Dattaprasad Gaonkar and Ramdas Mandrekar, have also been detained in connection with the slaying.
Sources claim that the First Information Report (FIR), case diary, statements, and other documents associated with the Goa Police investigation would now be sent to the CBI.
The two suspects, Sudhir Sangwan and Sukhwinder Singh, have been sent to13-day judicial custody
