SHILLONG, Feb 4 � Meghalaya police have registered a murder case in the death of Sub-Inspector PJ Marbaniang and a Special Investigation Team (SIT) was formed to investigate it.

Marbaniang was found mysteriously shot inside his official quarter in Patharkhmah on January 24, a day after detaining 32 coal-laden trucks plying illegally on the Patharkhmah route.

After the incident, the police claimed it was a case of suicide as �nobody was seen running away� when his colleagues rushed to the quarter after hearing a gunshot.

But acting Director General of Police, BL Buam said the police have now registered a case of murder under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) after preliminary analysis of the case.

�A Special Investigation Team has been formed which would be monitored by Superintendent of Police (City), Vivek Syiem and others,� Buam also said.

Earlier, the family members of Marbaniang dismissed the suicide theory of the police and stated that the police official was strong-willed and he could not have taken such a step. In fact, the police official had spoken to his wife sometime before he was found dead and he sounded normal, the family members said.

Meanwhile, president of Civil Society Women�s Organisation, Agnes Kharshiing today demanded that a CBI probe must be instituted in the case. �There should be a CBI probe into the death of the police officer,� Kharshiing said.
