On Thursday, Goa Forward Party MLA Vijai Sardesai took a swipe at the BJP-led state government over the investigation into actor Sonali Phogat’s death.
“Yesterday they said she died of heart attack. Today, post-mortem revealed several blunt force injuries. It proves Chief Minister likes to give clean chit, jump the gun. This is giving Goa a bad name. This shows the state of affairs here,” Sardesai said.
Notably, Goa’s CM Pramod Sawant stated on Wednesday that preliminary reports indicated Sonali Phogat passed away from cardiac arrest.
The brother of deceased actor and BJP leader Sonali Phogat claimed that her post-mortem report showed injury marks on her body on Thursday.
“A probe should be done as per the filed FIR. The post-mortem report says that her (Sonali Phogat) body has marks of injury,” said Rinku Dhaka, brother of Phogat.
“Murder case has been registered against two persons in Anjuna Police Station. The probe in the case is underway. The deceased’s brother has mentioned the involvement of her PA and one other person. Post-mortem report expected in 1-2 hours. Victim’s body will reach Delhi tonight,” OS Bishnoi, Inspector General of Police, Goa told media.
Phogat contested against Kuldeep Bishnoi in the last Haryana Assembly election from the Adampur constituency on a BJP ticket.
