CBI finds loopholes in Shopian probe

india Updated: Sep 20, 2009 18:46 IST

The CBI team has found some loopholes in the probe conducted by Special Investigative Team of Jammu and Kashmir police in the Shopian rape and murder case.

The team, which has started the investigation from the beginning, will also be taking the advice of forensic experts whether exhuming the bodies of Neelofar and his sister-in-law Aasiya, allegedly raped and murdered, after 120 days of the incident will serve any purpose, official sources said.

The investigators are also looking out for a person who has cleaned froth from Neelofar's mouth.

The nine-member team which arrived here on Thursday has discovered that several leads were not investigated properly by the SIT, including the letter which was purportedly written by a male classmate of Aasiya claiming she might have been murdered by her own family member, the sources said.

The letter, which was received at a police station in the newly carved out district in the Kashmir valley, claims that the two were on friendly terms and this was not liked by her brother Shakeel Ahmed Ahanghar.
