Bhopal: Three days after RTI activist Shehla Masood was shot dead outside her house in Bhopal, the Madhya Pradesh government has recommended a CBI inquiry. The decision came after Union minister Jairam Ramesh wrote to the chief minister, pointing at a possible mining mafia involvement in Masood's murder.

State Home Minister Uma Shankar Gupta said, "The family members had expressed concern and demanded a CBI inquiry to the whole incident. The state chief minister while accepting their demand has decided to write to the CBI to investigate into the murder."
The police had initially hinted the death could be a suicide, leading to allegations of a cover-up.
Masood's family hopes a CBI investigation will reveal the truth.
"I'm thankful that the case has been referred to the CBI as the local police had started botching it up. Secretly they were trying to divert attention and convert it into a suicide case," said Sultan Masood, Shehla Masood's father.
