By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, May 27 - The family of a 22-year-old girl from Arunachal Pradesh, who was allegedly murdered in neighbouring Raigad district last month, has demanded a CBI probe claiming local police are trying to hush up the case.

The girl, who was working at Siddhi Engineering in Mahad town, was found dead under mysterious circumstances on April 26 last. Her family members have alleged the she was murdered by the owner of the firm after she came to know about their �anti-social dealings�.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, the victim�s sister alleged that police are trying to protect the accused. �It has been over a month since the incident took place, but the police are yet to find the murder weapon or victim�s mobile.

She alleged that the police are trying to pass off the case as that of suicide. �Thus, I demand that the case should be handed over to CBI or Special Investigation Team,� she said.

She alleged that the FIR was registered 10 days after her sister�s murder and that too after the intervention of Union Home Ministry.

She also alleged that her sister had told their family friend �about the unscrupulous activities like carrying certain white powder, giving indications of dealing in narcotics. And unearthing of this appears to be the reason for her murder�.

She also claimed that there were indications that the victim was forced to have sexual relationship with the accused. � PTI
