CPI (ML) MLA, Amar Nath Yadav on Friday said in the House that his Party wants a CBI probe into the matter.
The NDA appeared undeterred by charges that a “ruling party MLA” could be involved in Papiya’s murder. “The police are doing their job. It hardly matters if the MLA is from the ruling party or the Opposition Party. If he is involved, he will be nabbed. Our regime believes that no-body is above the law, even if he is an MLA of the Ruling Party,” remarked NDA’s Chief Whip in the Assembly, Shrawan Kumar.
“So far, the investigations have not revealed that Papiya intended to sell off her house or was ever approached on this count by anyone. There is nothing to suggest that she even knew any politicians,” remarked a senior Minister. He said that the Opposition was just giving vent to its frustration as it had suffered a debacle in the recent by polls.
However, the ruling Party MLAs feel that only the arrest of Papiya’s killers will end the mindless speculations being made in the case.
