Following Mofia’s suicide from domestic violence, I visited her house Friday morning and spoke with her parents. There, Mofia’s father and I conversed with the Chief Minister on phone. CM assured fair and effective investigations into the case and took preliminary action against accused CI. CM assured more stringent action once the report was received. . Mofia’s mother said it would be a solace if a decision came by before noon.
Eventually the CI was sent into suspension. Investigations are progressing robust. Much of the police force are well-behaved personnel. All the same there are a few who are not so. The Home Department will take steps to eradicate that problem, said P Rajeev.
