Family demands probe by CBI in Nahargarh hanging

JAIPUR: Two days after a 40-year-old man’s corpse was found hanging from the famous Nahargarh fort with various inflammatory slogans over Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s ‘Padmavati’ scribbled on the fort walls, family of the deceased refuted the Police suicide theory, demanding a CBI probe into the mysterious death.

Police have been unable to confirm if Chetan Kumar Saini was murdered, referring to his death as a suspected suicide. But his relatives blocked the road at Nahari Ka Naka area on Sunday and also demanded that police register their FIR for murder.

Chetan’s wife Neetu slammed the Jaipur Police for covering up her husband’s murder as suicide.

“The police are lying that my husband committed suicide because of debts. He was regularly paying instalments for his loans. My husband could not have committed suicide. I want justice so that his soul may rest in peace,” she said during her husband’s condolence meet.

She was equally vocal that Saini did not have any interest in movies or Padmavati controversy, thereby questioning the inflammatory charcoal scribbles on fort walls threating those associated with the film’s release.

Chetan’s brother Ram Ratan Saini said that Jaipur police have not agreed to register the FIR under Section 302 (murder). “This is not a case of suicide, it is clear murder and should be probed as such,” he said, adding that they are a joint family and everybody would have helped Chetan if he were under debt.

Om Rajoria, president of Saini Vikas Sanstha, an organisation based on the caste Chetan belonged to, called the police’s press conference on Saturday a “farce”. “Why can’t the police register an FIR based on our report? If they don’t find any clues, they can file a final report (FR) in the court, we will not object to it. But, there is no consistency in police’s the claims. First they removed all evidence and then called a press conference to bury the murder,” he said. The Jaipur police, however, said they are waiting for handwriting experts to ascertain if scribblings on walls and stones of the rampart were written by Saini or whether they were of someone else. Police have also not been able to answer as to how Saini laid hands on the nylon rope used for hanging when a CCTV grab showed him walking towards the fort empty handed.
