"The identity of the informant will be kept secret, if so desired. The investigation into the case is in progress," a CBI spokesperson said here.

Earlier in March, the spokesperson said, the agency had prepared sketches and shared them with police. These sketches were prepared on the basis of information provided by the witnesses of the crime on August 20, 2013.

Dabholkar was shot dead when he was out for morning walk in Pune. CBI had registered an FIR in this incident in June last year after the Bombay High Court transferred the case to it.

The Bombay High Court had transferred the probe to CBI on May 9 last year on the basis of a PIL filed by former journalist Ketan Tirodkar on the plea that there was no headway in the Maharashtra police probe several months after the killing of the eminent rationalist.

The spokesperson said any information regarding the case can be addressed to the Superintendent of Police or its Deputy SP DS Chauhan, Special Crime Branch, Mumbai or on Phone Nos.: 022 27576804 and 022 27576820.
