BHOPAL: Former Union minister and Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia sought CBI probes into the gang rape of a minor girl in Mandsaur and the burning alive of a Dalit farmer in Bhopal recently.

Though the police have already arrested all the accused in both cases, Scindia demanded CBI probe. Scindia also demanded action against the Mandsaur school, if faults were found in security arrangement adopted by the school management.

“A CBI probe alone will lead to investigations into all aspects of the case, including the delay in lodging of FIR and police investigation.” The eight-year-old girl, who was kidnapped outside her school on June 26, was found dead later in bushes near the school the next afternoon. Her body bore multiple wounds.

Scindia, the four-time Guna MP, was scheduled to meet the girl’s parents at the MY Hospital later on Saturday evening. On Friday evening, the Congress leader had met the kin of farmer Kishorilal Jatav who was burned alive at Parsaria village in Berasia area on Bhopal’s outskirts.
