New Delhi: Goa Police on Sunday visited the house of Sudhir Sangwan, personal assistant of Sonali Phogat, as part of their investigation into the death of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, news agency PTI reported. The police team reached Sangwan’s residence in Haryana’s Rohtak to make some enquiries before leaving for Gurugram for further probe.
According to the report, Sangwan had a rented flat in Gurugram where the Goa Police will be conducting further investigation.
Phogat had died in Goa in August and the investigation into her death had led to the arrest of Sangwan, another aide Sukhwinder Singh and three others.
Phogat’s family members have been sticking to their demand for a CBI probe into her death, which is being treated as a case of murder.
Some family members of Phogat, including her nephew Moninder, said that they would file a plea before a court seeking CBI investigation into the case if the Goa government does not recommend investigation by the central agency.
Notably, it is the fifth day that the Goa Police have been conducting investigation in Haryana.
The team had reached Hisar on Wednesday and visited Phogat’s farmhouse and residence in Sant Nagar. They had also collected bank and property details of Phogat and Sangwan.
As per the report, police are also assessing the property, including land, to find out if there is any property angle.
Phogat, a former TikTok star and contestant on the TV reality show “Bigg Boss”, died hours after her arrival in Goa in August.
According to reports, she had partied with her aides at a restaurant on the night of August 22.
Her two aides – Sangwan and Sukhwinder Singh – have been charged with murder.
Phogat was administered methamphetamine and some left-over drug was recovered from the restaurant’s washroom, police said earlier.
