Family Alleges Conspiracy
The family has alleged that Phogat’s property which is worth more than Rs 100 crore could be the reason behind the murder. They also suspect the way CCTV DVR disappeared from the farmhouse, it seems there is a big conspiracy.
Her family alleged that a laptop, mobile, digital video recorder of the 12 CCTV cameras installed at the farmhouse and some documents were stolen from the farmhouse recently.
They claimed that Shivam, an aide of the BJP leader’s associate Sudhir Sangwan, had taken these things from the farmhouse after the news of her death on August 23.
The family alleges for this reason, as soon as the news of Sonali Phogat’s death came to Hisar, Shivam ran away from the farmhouse to weaken the claim of her family. The DVR and footage can prove to be very crucial in this case for the police.
The Haryana Police on Tuesday visited the farmhouse to probe a complaint of theft lodged by her family members.
