The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team probing the death of RTI activist Shehla Masood conducted a reconstruction of the scene of crime on Monday here.
The team visited Ms. Masood’s residence in the morning and carried out a re-enactment of the scene of crime.
“A team of experts from the Central ForensicScience Laboratory (CFSL) in Delhi has arrived in Bhopal and they tried to re-enact the scene of crime today,” DIG (CBI) Hemant Priyadarshi told The Hindu.
“The report of the CFSL team will certainly provide vital clues in solving the case,” said Mr. Priyadarshi.
Reliable sources told The Hindu that a relative of Ms. Masood, who shifted her to the passenger seat from the driver’s seat after he found her dead, was uncomfortable re-enacting the scene.
The said relative was not able to satisfactorily re-enact the scene earlier too when the Madhya Pradesh police carried out a re-enactment, said sources.
However, Mr. Priyadarshi refused to comment on “any such unsubstantiated rumours”.
Shehla Masood was shot dead outside her residence on 16 August. The CBI took over the case from the Madhya Pradesh police on Saturday following a request from the State government.
“Sharing any more information at this stage is not possible for us as it may hamper investigations,” Mr. Priyadarshi said.
