Shootout in embassy: CBI team in Kathmandu

By Our Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI, JAN. 19. A three-member team of the Central Bureau of Investigation has reached Kathmandu to probe the shootout in the Indian embassy complex there in which two Central Industrial Security Forcemen were killed.

The Government decided to hand over the case to the CBI for investigation and the agency had already initiated the probe, a CBI spokesman said. The team was also accompanied by two senior CISF officials. They were flown in a special aircraft last evening. Today, another team of forensic experts left for Kathmandu, the spokesman said.

The team is also likely to bring back the bodies of the two victims — CISF constables, T. Shanker and R. Kannan, and the accused, Ravinder Rana, another CISF constable. Preliminary investigation showed that the firing occurred after a verbal duel among the constables in the residential quarters in the embassy compound.
