Demand for CBI enquiry into Police officer murder case

Jaipur: About 300 Muslim and social organisations took out a rally in Jaipur on 11 April in support of Thana Incharge/SHO Phool Muhammad and made a demand to Rajasthan's home minister Shanti Dhariwal to arrest at the earliest all those responsible for his brutal murder and an enquiry into his murder by CBI. There was a good number of Muslim youths in this rally. Dissatisfied with state government's negligent attitude in this case the crowd raised slogans asking for the home minister's resignation. The rally, held by organisations, among many others, like Popular Front of India, Social Democratic Party of India, Muslim Forum, Jamaat Islami Hind (Rajasthan state branch) and so forth. It may be recalled that last month, Inspector Phool Muhammad, SHO of a police station in Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan was burnt to death by some persons after one of the protesters in a different case had climbed a water tank, set himself afire and tried to commit suicide by jumping from the water tank which lead to his death.
