Harda (MP): Madhya Pradesh Police has withdrawn all facilities provided to the CBI which is investigating the case of disappearance of a person in which one of the accused is a former state minister's son, according to an officer of investigating agency.

A letter by the state police headquarters to the CBI director stated that facilities like vehicles provided to the investigating team in Harda have been withdrawn, the official said.

The CBI, Lucknow, was investigating the disappearance of Durgesh Jat (18) after firing at a farm house at village Devtala near here in March 2008, following Madhya Pradesh High Court's order on a habeas corpus petition moved by Jat's father stating that he wanted a fair probe.

The agency is planning to move the High Court to get back the facilities provided to it by the state police.

The HC had directed the CBI to probe the matter and asked the state police to provide us with all facilities in the investigation, the officer said.

However, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Umashanker Gupta told agency, "I am not aware of the withdrawal of facilities to the CBI probing Jat's disappearance."

The accused in Jat missing case is Sandeep Patel, son of former Madhya Pradesh Minister and BJP MLA Kamal Patel, besides Dipak Saran, Arun Jat, Amit Patel and others.

The state police had provided three vehicles to CBI and spent Rs 20 lakh in providing different facilities to the agency over the last two years, sources added.
