Goa police claim that the BJP leader was drugged at a party, which added another twist to the murder investigation surrounding Sonali Phogat.
Panaji: A new chapter has been added in the Sonali Phogat murder mystery. Goa police claim that the BJP leader was drugged at a party, which added another twist to the murder investigation surrounding Sonali Phogat. This comes after the autopsy results found that she had suffered a blunt force injury, and two of her aides were later arrested on suspicion of murder.
Phogat’s relatives expressed satisfaction with the police inquiry into the BJP leader’s death that has been conducted so far. The post-mortem on Sonali Phogat was completed in Goa, and the post-mortem report indicated that poison was the cause of her death. Sonali Phogat’s funeral is being held in Haryana on Friday.
In a statement to the media, Sonali Phogat’s brother Rinku Dhaka said, “The family will decide whether or not to seek a CBI probe into her death after the last rites are performed. We are sure that it was a murder. We are satisfied with the probe done so far. “
Sonali Phogat, 42, died at the St Anthony Hospital in Anjuna in North Goa on Tuesday morning. Her family members questioned initial reports that she had died of cardiac arrest.
Mr Dhaka alleged, “Phogat’s PA had raped her after that and added poisonous drugs to her meals.”
Sonali Phogat, who rose to prominence through her TikTok videos, fought as a BJP candidate in the 2019 Haryana Assembly election but lost to then Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi (who later joined the BJP). She also took part in the reality show, Bigg Boss, in 2020.
