Bhopal: A CBI team led by DIG Hemant
Priyadarshi on Monsday visited the residence of slain Madhya
Pradesh RTI activist Shehla Masood here and recreated the
sequence of events that led to her murder.

The team, which reached Masood`s house around 11 am
recreated the scene of the killing, which took place outside
her residence last month.

It examined the car in which Masood was shot dead and a
man was made to sit in the vehicle to find out the possible
angles from which she may have been shot.

very challenging for the CBI as no clue or eyewitness has been
found in the case so far.

Members of the CBI team are holding discussions in
connection with the murder with her family, he said.

The DIG said some evidence has been found but it would
not be proper to disclose it at this point of time.

Asked how much time it would take to solve the case, the
officer said that it was not possible to give particular a

Masood was shot dead when she was going towards her car
outside her home in Koh-e-Fiza locality here on August 16.

The Madhya Pradesh government had sought a CBI probe into
the murder.
