Sonali Phogat's death: Goa Police registers murder case after kin file complaint
Sonali Phogat's brother Rinku Dhaka had filed a formal complaint with the Goa Police, claiming she was murdered by two of her associates.
The Goa Police has registered a murder case in connection with the death of BJP leader Sonali Phogat under section 302 of the IPC after a complaint filed by her family.
Phogat's brother Rinku Dhaka had filed a formal complaint with the Goa Police, claiming she was murdered by two of her associates.
In the complaint, Dhaka stated that Phogat had spoken to her mother, sister and brother-in-law a few hours before her death on August 23. He claimed that during the conversation Sonali had complained against her staff.
"She (Sonali) said Sangwan had given her food laced with some intoxicant, raped her and made a video and was threatening to make the video viral on social media," the police complaint read.
The complainant also claimed that Sangwan also threatened Sonali of destroying her political and acting career and seized her phones, property records, ATM cards, and house keys.
The BJP leader from Hisar in Haryana was brought dead to the St Anthony Hospital at Anjuna in North Goa on Tuesday morning. While preliminary reports suggested that she died of a cardiac arrest, her family members suspect foul play.
