BJP demands CBI probe in Goa blast case


Panaji : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into last week’s Goa blast case in which two people were killed.

Speaking to reporters in Panaji Tuesday, Leader of Opposition Manohar Parrikar said Home Minister Ravi Naik was “sabotaging the police investigation for political ends” and only a central agency could conduct an effective probe into the Diwali eve blast in Goa.

“We will be approaching Goa Governor S.S. Sidhu and we will also approach the union home ministry with a formal request that the case be handed over to CBI,” he said.

The incident took place Friday evening when an improvised explosive device being ferried by activists of the Hindu right-wing group Sanatan Sanstha on a two-wheeler went off.
