GORAKHPUR: A brother of Dr Kafeel Khan, an accused in the Gorakhpur medical negligence case, today met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath during a "janta darbar" and sought a CBI probe into the recent attack on another member of their family.

Adeel Khan said, "I met the chief minister and appealed to him to take action against those who attacked my younger brother Kashif Khan. He issued necessary directions to Senior Superintendent of Police Shalabh Mathur in this regard."

In an application addressed to the chief minister, Adeel wrote, "A CBI probe will help in the delivery of justice."

A few days ago, Adeel had written a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, demanding that an honest police officer should be asked to look into the case.

"My brother (Kashif Khan) was shot at on June 10 and since then, the police have not been able to get any clue about the miscreants," the letter read.

He had alleged that the case was related to BJP MP Kamlesh Paswan and the police were not able to take action against him and his accomplices.

At a press conference in Lucknow on June 17, Dr Kafeel Khan had expressed suspicion that Paswan was behind the attack on his brother, which was termed "baseless" by the Bansgaon MP.
