Bhopal: Experts from the forensic department of Delhi-based All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) arrived along with some CBI officials to probe the murder of RTI activist, Shehla Masood, sources said.

The AIIMS team led by Forensic Science Department Head, Dr T D Dogra arrived here last night and today started piecing together the sensational murder that took place just outside Shehla's residence when she was sitting in her Santro car on August 16, sources said.

She was supposed to take part in the India Against Corruption movement that day but was shot dead just outside her house with no one hearing any gunshot.

Dogra and his team was going through all the documentary evidences that the CBI, local forensic officials and Bhopal Police have so far collected from various places including the scene of crime, they said.

The team accompanied by the State Medico Legal Institute's Director, Dr DS Badkur visited Shehla's residence to examine the place and also met Shehla's family members, they said.

The team is likely to stay here for a couple of days to gather evidence in the case which has remained unresolved for several months and despite CBI announcing a reward of Rs five lakh to anyone providing credible information in this regard.
