IPS trainee's death: Family writes to PMO for CBI probe
Two days after the her son Manu Mukt Manav (30), who was undergoing IPS training at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (NPA), Hyderabad, died after ‘drowning’ under mysterious circumstances, the victim’s mother who hails from Hisar on Monday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to get the matter probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation to bring the truth out.
The incident took place at the NPA on August 28. Manu had got into Indian Police Service after bagging 180th rank in the Civil Services Examination in 2013.
In her e-mail letter, Kanta Bhardwaj, said she had heard contradictory accounts of what happened on that night.
“I have been told that the NPA has ordered an internal inquiry and have started an inquest at a local police station. However, I do not trust fairness of these investigations,” she added.
In the letter to the PM, she said to save their skin, the responsible officials and workers may not only tamper with the facts, but may also negatively influence the investigations and its conclusions. Apart from the Prime Minister’s Office, the family has also forwarded the letter to home minister Rajnath Singh, minister of state Jitender Singh and the CBI director.
