With new facts coming to light, the Shimla municipal corporation (SMC) Social Justice Committee has reiterated its demand for a CBI inquiry in the alleged murder of 22-year-old Chitra on February 20.
In a written communiqué to chief justice of the Himachal High Court on Friday, SMC Social Justice Committee chairman Tikender Singh Panwar again asked to either transfer the case to the crime branch or to the CBI or the case should be progressed under the supervision of the court.
"Claim of police that the victim was under influence of evil spirit completely deserves to be demolished and those who are arrested are undoubtedly related to the murder but there are more people who have not been arrested. It is case of flesh trade racket in which the victim was forced to enter against her wishes. A new revelation quite unambiguously proves our point, as the semen found on the victim's clothes is not of those who have been arrested but of someone else," he claimed.
Chitra, a 22-year-old married woman, was found murdered on the outskirts of Shimla on February 20.
