Body of Ajit Jogi's daughter 're-buried'

By Our Staff Correspondent

RAIPUR, JUNE 6. The Chhattisgarh Chief Minister, Mr. Ajit Jogi, today ``re-buried'' the body of his daughter, Anusha, at his ancestral village in Gorella, after exhuming it from a graveyard in Indore.

The mortal remains of Anusha were re-buried in the compound of Mr. Jogi's ancestral house in Gorella which falls in the Marwahi constituency.

Anusha (22) had reportedly committed suicide in Mr. Jogi's official residence at Indore on May 12 last year because her parents did not approve of her choice of a groom and wanted her to marry a boy they had chosen for her.

The incident had taken place while Mr. Jogi, who was then the Congress spokesperson, was busy with the Congress president, Ms. Sonia Gandhi's visit to Indore.

Mr. Jogi had been seeking permission for exhuming Anusha's body for a long time. Now, he got the permission from the Indore municipality on Tuesday. The body was exhumed late in the night and flown to Bilaspur in a State plane.

Mr. Jogi and his wife, Ms. Renu Jogi, along with close associates, took the coffin to Gorella by road where it was ``re- buried'' after the rituals. While officials were saying that the Chief Minister was in New Delhi, sources maintained that Mr. Jogi made an unscheduled visit to Raipur where he held a meeting with the Collector following which the exhumation was carried out. The State plane which carried the VIP's returned to the Mana airport at 1.00 p.m.
