CBI report by Dec. 6

The CBI will submit a preliminary investigation report in Dileshwar Mahto missing case within December 6, obeying the Supreme Court deadline, even as the mystery over the suspected Maoist’s whereabouts deepens.

A three-member team, led by superintendent of police CBI (New Delhi) Naresh Kumar Sharma, quizzed a number of people in Jamshedpur over the last four days in relation to this case. The team returned to Delhi on Monday.

“Our preliminary inquiry is complete. We have to honour the deadline. We have done whatever we could within the time frame,” SP Sharma told The Telegraph before leaving the city. He refused divulge details.

On October 18, the apex court directed the CBI to submit a report in the case of Dileshwar Mahto (44), who went missing after his release by Sonari police in July 2010.

In view of the order, the CBI team arrived in Jamshedpur on November 28 and quizzed Dileshwar’s wife Shefali Mahto, sub-inspectors Nand Kishore and Lalit Kumar, and some members of PUCL, a human rights body.

While OC Burmamines Nand was then in-charge of Golmuri police station, Lalit, who is now in STF, was then OC of Sonari police station. Nand confirmed the CBI team had called him to Circuit House. “The CBI quizzed Lalit Kumar and me two days ago. We told them we had released Dileshwar from Sonari police station after grilling,” he said.

PUCL functionary Nishant Akhilesh, quizzed by the CBI team, said: “If Dileshwar is dead, we want penalty for those responsible for it.”
