New Delhi: The CBI facing shortage of investigators has asked Bihar Government to spare its police officers for the probe of Ranvir Sena supreme Bramheshwar Singh Mukhiya's murder.
The central investigating agency has shown willingness to probe the murder provided it is assigned adequate man-power to work under CBI supervision during the investigation, sources said.
The CBI has made similar request to the Uttar Pradesh government in the National Rural Health Mission probe which was duly accorded by the state government.
Nitish Kumar had recommended a CBI probe into the killing of Ranvir Sena supremo Bramheshwar Singh shot dead on June 1.
The agency, which is facing an acute staff crunch, has been given the job of investigating into a large number of corruption and special crime cases spread across multiple locations making the probe an arduous task, the sources said.
