Bhopal: A Delhi CBI team has arrived here
to take over the investigations into the murder of RTI
activist Shehla Masood.

The team comprising Joint Director Keshav and DIG Arun
Bosra arrived yesterday to take charge of the probe into the
killing of the RTI activist who was shot dead by an
unidentified person in front of her residence in the posh
Koh-e-Fiza locality on August 16.

The team members interacted with their counterparts in
Bhopal unit and reviewed the investigations done so far.

The Bhopal unit of the CBI had been looking into
Shehla`s murder since the first week of September and even
announced a reward of Rs five lakh for anyone giving
information leading to the arrest of the assailant(s).

The probe is being handed over to Delhi CBI since the
Bhopal unit has failed to make any headway into the matter.
