ALIGARH: Wife of slain IPS officer Narendra Kumar Singh, who was crushed under wheels of a tractor-trolley driven by an alleged member of the mining mafia in Madhya Pradesh, has demanded a CBI probe into the incident.

"As a wife, a family member, I would say, CBI enquiry is what I expect from my officers, my government if they can...

They should actually go for a CBI enquiry. If they do that I would be more than happy, I'll be obliged," Kumar's wife Madhurani Tewatia said.

Tewatia, who is an IAS officer posted in Gwalior and is currently on maternity leave, said merely punishing the driver would not satisfy her.

"The mafia, criminals and goons should be arrested and eliminated...start from the roots, go till the end. Only showing that the driver has been arrested, slapping 302 on him, 2-3 years punishment for him, if this is what is to be done, I would say don't do it," she told a news channel.

30-year-old Singh, who was posted as Sub Divisional Officer of Police at Banmore in Morena district was crushed by a tractor-trolley driven by an alleged member of the mining mafia when he tried to stop the vehicle illegally carrying stones.

The distraught father of the 2009-batch IPS officer Keshav Dev claimed the killing was a "well-planned conspiracy" against his son who did not receive cooperation of local police and authorities.

The driver identified as Manoj Gurjar has been arrested and a case registered under section 302 (murder) of the IPC.

The Madhya Pradesh government ordered a judicial probe yesterday.

The Opposition Congress demanded a CBI probe, a plea rejected by the BJP-ruled government
