Sonali Phogat Murder: Now CBI will investigate Sonali Phogat murder case, Goa government recommends

Panaji: Recommends CBI to investigate BJP leader and Tiktok star Sonali Phogat death case. Earlier Goa Police was investigating the case and 5 accused including Sudhir Sangwan were arrested. Significantly, Sonali Phogat’s family was continuously demanding a CBI inquiry. In this case, a Khap Panchayat was held on Sunday in which it was demanded that the investigation be handed over to the CBI. Sonali Phogat’s daughter Yashodhara herself had also made a demand.

The Sarva Jatiya Khap Mahapanchayat had given the government an ultimatum to recommend a CBI probe into Sonali’s death by September 23. Expressing dissatisfaction with the Goa Police’s investigation in Sonali Phogat’s death case, her family has been continuously demanding a CBI probe.

Scrutiny from Goa to Haryana
Goa Police was investigating in the case of Sonali Phogat’s death. He had also searched Haryana including Hisar, Rohtak and Gurugram. Phogat’s family members have been adamant on the demand for a CBI probe in the case, saying they are dissatisfied with the Goa Police’s investigation.

Some members of Phogat’s family had said that if the Goa government does not recommend a probe by the premier investigating agency, they will file a petition before a court, requesting a CBI probe in the matter. Phogat and his associates had a party on the intervening night of 22 and 23 August at Curlies restaurant in Goa.

The family had demanded a CBI inquiry
Phogat, who rose to fame from Tiktok, was brought dead at a hospital in North Goa district on August 23, a day after she reached Goa. The Goa Police has so far arrested accused Sudhir Sangwan, another aide Sukhwinder Singh and three others in connection with the murder.

Earlier, Sonali’s brother Rinku Dhaka said that if the government had decided to recommend a CBI probe, there would have been no need to hold a Khap Mahapanchayat. Rinku Dhaka again reiterated that her family is not satisfied with the investigation by the Goa Police.

About two weeks ago, the Haryana government had written to the Goa government requesting it to recommend a CBI probe into the death of BJP leader Sonali Phogat. The Haryana government took this step after Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar assured Phogat’s family members in this regard.
