Indore: The Madhya Pradesh government on Sunday said it would be unfair to question the functioning of state police in the RTI activist Shehla Masood murder case, whose probe was later handed over to the CBI.
"As desired by Shehla`s family, The state government promptly handed over the case to CBI. Therefore, there is no question of state police not being able to solve the case," state Home Minister Uma Shankar Gupta said here.
"Bhopal Police didn`t handle the probe for long," he added. The CBI yesterday questioned BJP MLA Dhruv Narayan Singh and his close friend Sanjay Gupta in the case.
On the proposed National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), he said the state government had already registered its protest. "There is no need for NCTC as it would violate the rights of the state," he said, alleging that through the proposed body, Centre was trying to interfere in the issues concerning the states.
