Sonali Phogat Murder: Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday said his government would recommend handing over the case related to the death of Haryana BJP leader and actress Sonali Phogat to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). “We have decided to hand over the investigation of Sonali Phogat to the CBI. We have full faith in our police but people have repeatedly demanded and his daughter has also demanded that the matter be dealt with by the CBI. That’s why we are making this recommendation.
The death of 43-year-old Sonali Phogat, believed to be a case of murder, died in the intervening night of August 22-23, a day after she reached Goa. He died after consuming drugs allegedly given by his personal assistant Sudhir Sangwan and his associate Sukhwinder Singh. Sudhir and Sukhwinder are now in police custody.
Daughter had sought help from PM-CM
Sonali Phogat’s only daughter Yashodhara Phogat had tweeted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar regarding the investigation into her mother’s death. The tweet requested a CBI inquiry into the matter. Yashodhara had written that the case should be handed over to the CBI and justice should be given to my mother. Sonali’s family had been demanding a CBI probe from the very beginning, expressing the possibility of some big political conspiracy behind her death. His family was never satisfied with the investigation by the Goa Police.
The pressure was created by calling Khap Panchayat
Late Haryanvi Tiktok star Sonali Phogat came from a Jat family. What is the status of Jats in Haryana’s politics and society, it is not hidden from anyone. Gradually, the whole society started mobilizing to demand justice for the daughter of Jat. Yesterday i.e. on Sunday 11 September, its first glimpse was also seen, when the Sarva Jatiya Khap Mahapanchayat was held in Jat Dharamshala of Hisar, in which Sonali Phogat’s family and their daughter Yashodhari also participated. It was decided in the mahapanchayat that if the investigation of the case is not handed over to the CBI, then on September 24, another big mahapanchayat would be organized. In which not only the people of Haryana but also the people of Jat fraternity of adjoining states will participate and take tough decisions.
