The Centre on Friday gave the go-ahead to a CBI probe into the murder of Madhya Pradesh RTI activist Shehla Masood in Bhopal.

"We received a letter from the MP government and have forwarded it to CBI for its views," minister of state for department of personnel V Narayanasamy told PTI in New Delhi.

He said "I have just cleared the file and granted permission for a CBI probe into the case."

The Centre had received a letter from Madhya Pradesh government requesting for a CBI probe into the murder of Masood in Bhopal.

Masood was shot dead outside her residence in Bhopal on August 16.
