Patna, Nov 6 (UNI) Demanding judicial probe into the killing of Patna -based youth Rahul Raj in Mumbai by the MNS suporters, Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee(BPCC) today alleged that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had ''ignored'' holding of second post-mortem of the deceased.
BPCC chief Anil Sharma told newspersons here that apart from Mr Kumar all those, including Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and Bihar PHED Minister Ashwani Kumar Choubey, were ''guilty'' in the eyes of law.
He said the second post-mortem was essentail as it could have exposed some more facts behind the alleged encounter resulting in the killing of the youth.
After visiting Mr Kumdan Singh, the bereaved father of Rahul, he further said even Mr Kundan had also resquested Mr Kumar, Mr Modi and Mr Choubey for conducting a second post-mortem as the mortal remains of his son had several black spots.
Mr Sharma alleged that ignoring the request of Mr Singh the mortal remains of Rahul were consigned to flames in a haste after past midnight and that too on the occasion of Deepawali.
Terming the death of Rahul '' a brutal killing,'' Mr Sharma said the youth was shot dead from close range as revealed in the autopsy reports. Before shooting he was beaten black and blue, which had been proven from the scars on his body and face.
It was ironical that when the bereaved father wanted a second post-mortem, the state government showed extra interest in cremating the body in a haste, he added.
Mr Sharma said the National Human Rights Commission should also initiate suo motu inquiry into the encounter resulting in the killing of Rahul.
He also suggested the Chief Minister to institute an independent judicial probe to know the actual fact behind the killing of Rahul.
