Brother-in-law of Additional Collector Yashwant Sonawane, killed by oil mafia in Nashik district on Tuesday, has demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident.

"Sonawane's Personal Assistant (PA) as well as the driver was there when the incident occurred. It is surprising that only he was targeted," Anand Dani, brother-in-law of the slain Maharashtra civil service officer, said.

Mobile phone records of Sonawane should be checked and the probe should be handed over to CBI, Dani said.

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in legislative assembly, Eknath Khadse, held Food and Civil Supplies department responsible for the incident.

"Two months ago Food and civil supplies Minister Anil Deshmukh carried out the farce of conducting raids (on oil mafia)," Khadse said.

Republican Party of India Leader and former MP Prakash Ambedkar also demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident.
