New Delhi: The CBI is likely to start probe
into the mysterious death of Swami Nigamananda who died at
Dehra Dun in June after nearly four months of fast protesting
illegal mining on Ganga river bed.
CBI sources said they are expecting a notification to be
issued within two-three days by the Centre handing over probe
into the death of Nigamananda to the agency.
The state government has already sent its request for a
CBI probe to the Centre after coming under strong pressure
from local saints who alleged foul play in the death of the
Swami who was demanding shifting of stone crushers from Kumbh
Local religious leaders and the family of Nigamananda,
who died on June 13 at a hospital in Dehra Dun, had alleged
that he was poisoned and suspected the role of local mining
mafia in his death.
