New Delhi: Karan Pandey, the 19-year-old youth who was shot dead by Delhi police in an alleged attempt to stop stunt bikers from performing risky stunts in the high-security New Delhi area was cremated on Tuesday amid demands of a CBI inquiry into the case by his mother.

"I want a CBI inquiry into the case as I don't believe in the investigation done by Delhi police. They are the one in question into the case, how can they probe it," said Karan's mother Manju Pandey after Karan was cremated at Malviya Nagar crematorium in south Delhi.

She also demanded the arrest of inspector Rajneesh Parmar who opened fire on her son. Meanwhile, Punit Sharma, the youth who was riding the bike on which Karan was riding pillion was discharged from RML hospital and he was questioned by the police.

"He was questioned into the case. He may face an arrest soon," said a senior police officer. Stunt biking by errant youth led to a tragic incident on Sunday when Parmar opened fire, which hit Karan on his back, who was riding pillion on Punit's motorcycle.

Both of them were rushed to RML hospital were Karan was declared brought dead.
