THE Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials on Tuesday interrogated Priyanka Todi, daughter of prime accused Ashok Todi and widow of Muslim computer graphics teacher Rizwanur Rahman, who was found dead under mysterious circumstances a few days after his marriage.

Moreover, the CBI team is also looking at the option of exhuming the body of Rizwanur for further examination. The investigation agency will also be forming a medical board to analyse the post-mortem and forensic reports.

Speaking to HT, the CBI Joint Director Arun Kumar confirmed about a medical board in New Delhi with the help of experts from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). “I will also discuss the post mortem report with the experts before coming to an conclusion,” he said.

On interrogation of Priyanka Todi, Kumar said, “At the request of the Todi family, we have interrogated Priyanka at a third place. She has not been interrogated at her house or at the CBI office. She has been interrogated elsewhere and was very cooperative.”

The CBI in the last four days has interrogated more than 20 people and has obtained vital clues.

The investigating team also interrogated Rizwanur’s brother Rukbanur and other family members; Todi’s brother Pradip and Rizwanur’s colleagues at the multimedia training centre where Rizwanur was a teacher.

Meanwhile, the CBI has issued a notice urging anyone having any information regarding the incident to come forward and report it to them.

The information (regarding Rizwanur’s death) could be conveyed to CBI officials: Satish Golcha, DIG – 09968081100, S.H. Zaki Ahmed, SP – 09968081600 and also at 9433044834, the CBI sources said.
