In response to mounting pressure, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant announced on Monday that the case involving the death of BJP lawmaker Sonali Phogat would be turned over to the CBI. He emphasized that the family of the late BJP leader and the Haryana government have made constant demands in this respect.
“We are giving the Sonali Phogat death case to the CBI. It is because we have been receiving consistent demands from Haryana and her family that it should be handed over to the central agency,” Sawant stated. He further added, “I will be writing to union home minister Amit Shah in this regard later today.”
Sonali Phogat, an actor-politician from Haryana, was discovered dead in Goa last month. Despite the fact that a heart attack was declared to be the primary cause of death, her relatives claimed foul play. Later, an investigation into drug overdose deaths was initiated.
