New Delhi, Oct 19 (UNI) The CBI has registered a case against West Bengal industrialist Ashok Todi and others in the Rizwanur Rehman death case.

After analysing the entire judgment of the Calcutta High Court on October 16, the CBI formed a special team headed by a Joint Director, to go into the circumstances leading to the mysterious death of the computer graphics teacher.

Rizwanur's death, following his marriage to Priyanka, Todi's daughter, on August 18, had sparked a national outcry.

The agency, while registering an FIR against Todi and others under Section 302 of IPC, will now visit the area where Rizwanur's body was found.

The High Court had directed the CBI to go into the circumstances of the unnatural death of the youth whose body was found on the rail tracks near Dum Dum on September 21.

Rizwanur's death, following his marriage to Priyanka, Todi's daughter, on August 18, had sparked a national outcry.

The youth had allegedly been threatened by senior Kolkata police officials, including two Deputy Commissioners, to separate from his wife.

Rizwanur's mother Kishwar Jahan and elder brother Rukbanur had moved the High Court seeking a CBI inquiry into his death, claiming they did not have faith in any probe conducted by any state agency.
