Chhattisgarh asks Centre to reconsider NIA probe into BJP MLA killing
By Indian Express 09-Jun-2019
In a recent order, the union home ministry said the NIA will investigate into the Maoist attack that killed the MLA after the case has been registered by it under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, Indian Arms Act and UA(P) Act 1967.
Barely two days before the first phase of polling in Bastar Lok Sabha constituency, the BJP MLA and four policemen were killed in a powerful IED blast triggered by the Naxals at Dantewada on April 9.
“The case is being investigated by us, we already accomplished much of it and the process now remains in advance stage. So the state home department has written to the Centre (home ministry) to reconsider the decision of asking the NIA to initiate a probe into it”, the Chhattisgarh Director General of Police D M Awasthi told the Express.
The Bhupesh Baghel government has also ordered a judicial probe into the Dantewada incident. The state BJP suspecting the killing of it MLA as conspiracy had earlier demanded a CBI probe into it. “Why the BJP doesn’t trust the judicial inquiry and suspects the government’s intention”, the Congress spokesperson Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said.
