The widow of slain FCI official PC Ram killed in a cross-fire between police and ULFA militants in Assam on Thursday accused the police of killing her husband on Saturday.
On seeing her husband's body, Padmawati alleged that police killed him and said all those responsible for his death should be punished.
"Police have shattered all our hopes of Ram returning home," said Balak Ram, brother of the FCI official.
The body, brought here from Guwahati, had been sent to Delhi for autopsy, family members said.
Relatives and friends of the family flocked to Ram's house to mourn his death.
On Friday, his family demanded a CBI probe into the gunbattle between police and ULFA in which Ram was killed.
They claimed the operation was aimed at eliminating him and not the militants who had kidnapped him.
Ram's son Prabin said his family would conduct another autopsy on Ram's body to prove that he was "deliberately" killed.
The FCI Executive Director, who headed organisation's operations in the North-East, was kidnapped by ULFA on April 17 in Guwahati.
