Rizwanur Case
Probe ordered into IO’s death
Tribune News Service

Kolkata, February 12
Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacrajee has ordered a CID inquiry into the mysterious death of GRP sub-inspector Arindam Manna, the main investigating officer in the Rizwanur Rahman death case. Manna's body was found lying on the side of railway tracks near Mankundu station near Serampore in Hooghly on Wednesday.

However, the officer’s parents and relatives have demanded a CBI probe into the incident alleging that Manna has been a victim of the conspiracy hatched by the CPM and the local police who want to hush up the Rizwanur’s murder case.

Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee also came out in the support of Manna’s parents today. Accompanied by her party leaders and workers, she visited the accident site and also met the victim’s parents at their residence at Dashnagar in Howrah.

The victim’s parents told Mamata that he was under repeated threats from the officer-in-charge of Dum Dum railway police and some other colleges who wanted him to submit a report to the court stating that Rizwanur had committed suicide and was not murdered. However, Manna did not entertain them. They further said the post-mortem was carried in a hurry at the Calcutta Medical College Hospital. Neither the victim’s parents nor any other friends or relatives ‘were allowed to be present there.’
