Ranchi, May 11 (ANI): The clothes of Delhi-based journalist Nirupama Pathak, who was found dead in mysterious circumstances at her home in Jharkhand's Koderma District on April 29, have been sent for forensic tests to Ranchi.
Meanwhile, Nirupama's boyfriend Priyabhanshu Ranjan's family has demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into her death.
On May 9, Ranjan's parents claimed to have mobile proof that could nail the complicity of Nirupama's parents in what they say is murder.
In a startling claim, Ranjan's father said he had Nirupama's last SMS in which she said that she had been locked inside a bathroom and was not being allowed to go out.
He also said that a similar message had come from his son, who was in Delhi.
The revelation came after Koderma Police served notices to three doctors who had performed a post mortem on Nirupama.
The court directed the police to file a First Information Report (FIR) against Ranjan, following charges levelled by Nirupama's arrested mother Subha Pathak.
Nirupama's mother has described her daughter' death as a suicide case.
However, the post-mortem report revealed that Pathak died due to asphyxia as a result of smothering. A 10 to 12 week-old foetus was also found during the autopsy. (ANI)
