Around two months after Congress leader Rajwant Singh Shergill’s decomposed body was found in his car at Sector 69 here, police have decided to hand over his phones to a private company to retrieve data at the earliest.
A senior officer claimed that the investigation suffered as Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) failed to provide a report of the deceased’s phone, which was one of the main clues to trace the accused. The officer added, “We enquired about the report from FSL a number of times, but it was learnt that it is a tedious process to provide reports. Therefore, we opted for an alternative to carry forward the investigation.”
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Inder Mohan Singh said, “FSL does not have any specific time limit to submit reports. We have decided to take assistance from a private agency so that we can get evidence for solving the case at the earliest.”
Earlier, police had questioned several people during investigations, including family members, but failed to get any clue.
The SSP added that it was learned during the investigation that the deceased used to change SIM cards every two months.
