Patna, May 6(UNI) The Bihar government is likely to recomend CBI probe into the ''mysterious'' disappearance of Archana Rani, daughter of a judge, following the pressure exerted by the girl's family members.

Sources at the state headquarters said here today that the police was already investigating the case, but the government might recomend a CBI inquiry into the matter giving into the demand of the bereaved family members of Archana.

Giving the details of the investigations, the sources said the police had made progress in the case and had extensively interrogated the in-laws of the newly wed Archana who had mysteriously disappeared from the running train on August 15 last year while travelling along with her husband.

The police was also planning narco analysis test on Archana's husband as demanded by the family members, the sources added.

Meanwhile, Archana's mother and brother Ravishankar met Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in his janata durbar yesterday and had demanded a CBI probe into the entire matter.

Concerned with the well being of her sister, Ravishanker told newspersons that CBI probe alone could expose the truth. He alleged that even after passage of more than ten months the police failed to get any clue about his missing sister and could not book the guilty involved in her disappearance.

Archana's mother even threatened her entire family members would immolate themselves in front of the Chief Minister if the CBI probe was not ordered.

She raised doubts over the role of the local police alleging that the police was playing dubious role into the investigations.

She said the railway police had concluded it to be a case of murder, while the local police was trying to term it as case of abduction.

On August 15 last Archana, daughter of Additional District and Sessions Judge Subhash Chandra Prasad, had mysteriously disappeared from a running train between Katihar and Mokama stations while travelling with her husband.
