Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Monday said the state government would not oppose a CBI inquiry into the murder of Papai Saha here on July 11 last year.

Sarkar, who also holds charge of the Home department in reply to a question asked by Leader of the opposition Ratan Lal Nath said, "The matter (murder of Saha) is being investigated by CID who have also filed chargesheet in a court."

"If there is no legal problem then we have no objection to refer the matter (Saha murder case) to the CBI for further investigation," the chief minister said.

Papai Saha was killed by a bullet on July 11 when Congress workers fought a pitch battle with the police.

The Congress had claimed that Saha was killed by a unruly jawan of Tripura State Rifles (TSR).

The CID chargesheet, however, found one local youth was involved in the murder of Saha.
