Claiming that it is murder, the relatives and friends of the KAS officer staged a protest by blocking national Highway at Channi Himmat and demanded CBI probe or constituting an SIT to investigate the matter so the truth will come out.
They alleged that it is not a suicide case because Sushil's could not take such a step to hang himself with ceiling fan in the apartment and that it is a murder case which needs to be investigated.
They also said that similar cases took place in Laswara village when the body of a young person was found and it was a clear murder, but no one has been arrested so far.
A senior police officer, seeking anonymity, told Early Times that the alleged suicide of a KAS officer is a matter of great concern and the department is working on various angles to know the reasons behind the extreme step.
