IPS officer murder: CBI team visits spot of crime
The team also visited the spot where the IPS official was killed and examined the tractor-trolley which had mowed down the 30-year-old Singh who was posted as Sub-Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP) at Banmore. The investigations were formally taken over by the central agency yesterday after Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan recommended the probe on the demand of the slain officer`s IAS wife and other family members.
Singh was mowed down allegedly by a mining mafia member Manoj Gurjar when he tried to intercept the tractor-trolley laden with illegally mined stones on March 8. Gurjar was arrested by the police immediately after the incident and is currently lodged in jail under judicial custody.
