Bhopal, Mar.25 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Sunday claimed that it had recovered the country-made gun used to murder Right to Information (RTI) activist Shehla Masood in her car outside her residence last year.
The CBI said that they had recovered the gun from Saqib Ali alias Danger, one of the main accused in the crime.
Earlier, a special CBI court had on Saturday recorded the statement of Irfan, an alleged contract killer and an accused in the Masood murder case.
The statement was recorded in-camera before Special Judicial Magistrate (CBI) Dr Shubhra Singh under section 16 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
Irfan is in judicial custody till April 3.
So far, five persons have been arrested in the case-Irfan, Bhopal-based interior designer Zahida Pervez, her friend/confidant Saba Faroqui, Saqib Ali (Danger) and a suspected killer, Tabish Khan.
The CBI's preliminary probe has established that Pervez got Masood killed out of jealousy, as she could not stand latter's growing closeness to BJP MLA Dhruv Narayan Singh. (ANI)
