Calcutta, Oct. 10: The CID is promising to resolve the mystery over Rizwanur Rahman’s death by next week when it will submit a report to the state government.
CID sources said the agency was veering round to the view that it was a suicide, matching the suggestion in its interim report. The final report was not expected to make a dramatic departure but the government could ease out some officers once it is filed.
CID inspector-general P. Neeraj Narayan said it was “certain” Rizwanur was hit by a train without explaining the basis of the conclusion.
Police commissioner Prasun Mukherjee, who made an unscheduled visit to Delhi yesterday, said cricket — not the controversy — was the reason for his trip. “I had gone to Delhi to meet board president Sharad Pawar over renewal of lease of Eden Gardens. I got a call and had to rush within short notice,” Mukherjee told The Telegraph.
But Mukherjee confirmed that he met the chiefs of the CBI and the Intelligence Bureau. “It was just a courtesy visit,” he said amid speculation that a hunt is on for a face-saver post.
