SHILLONG, Jan 28 � The Civil Society Women�s Organisation (CSWO) today demanded a CBI inquiry into the mysterious death of Sub-Inspector PJ Marbaniang.
In a memorandum to Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, CSWO president Agnes Kharshiing said that several questions have arisen about Marbanaing�s death.
It has been reported that the police official was frequently transferred from one district to the other after he had detained coal-laden trucks plying illegally.
�We highly suspect that he (Marbaniang) was murdered and such pressure and killing would put to threat many honest officers who are willing to uphold the law of the land,� she said in the memorandum. The police official was found dead in his official quarter in Patharkhmah on Saturday, less than 24 hours after he had detained 32 coal-laden trucks plying illegally. The police have claimed that it was a case of suicide.
