"This issue should not be looked at from the point of view of any religion or the religion of the victim. He was a brave officer who died while performing his duty," he said while speaking to reporters here.

Habibullah who was here to participate in a conference at Aligarh Muslim University yesterday was replying to a question whether the DSP had been silenced since he was investigating the role of some of the cohorts of Raja Bhaiya during the communal violence in Partapgarh in June last year.

He said that one should have full confidence in the country's premier investigating agency which was probing this case.

He said that the CBI should allowed to investigate the case without any sort of pressure.
