Man accused of stealing Sonali Phogat’s devices caught in Haryana
Haryana’s Hisar Police today arrested a man in connection with the alleged murder of Sonali Phogat after her family accused him of stealing a laptop and mobile phone from the BJP leader’s farmhouse.
The district police seized the items and are now questioning the suspect.
Meanwhile, a Goa police team also arrived in Hisar district today to investigate the case. The team first went to Sadar Police Station and later visited Sonali Phogat’s farmhouse to gather evidence related to the case.
Goa Police will also visit an apartment building in Gurugram said to belong to Sonali Phogat’s aide Sudhir Sangwan, one of the main suspects in the murder case.
The family still insist on referring the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation days after the governments of Haryana and Goa assured them the same.
So far, five people have been arrested in the case.
The Haryana BJP leader’s allies Sudhir Sangwan and Sukhwinder Singh, who were arrested on Thursday, were held in police custody for 10 days.
Police have so far questioned more than 25 people, including staff at the restaurant, the resort where Ms Phogat was staying, the hospital where she was pronounced dead and her driver.
Ms Phogat was coerced into drinking methamphetamine (meth) drugs by the defendants at the famous Curlie beach restaurant-nightclub on Anjuna beach, police said, citing surveillance camera footage and confessions.
She “felt unwell” and could barely walk on her own after drinking it, and was taken to the Hotel Grand Leonny by her staff, where they were staying. The BJP leader was taken to St Anthony’s Hospital the next morning, where she was pronounced dead.
