ASSEMBLY POLL '98
CBI team summoned to probe Staines murder
A six-member Central Bureau of Investigation team has been sent to Orissa to investigate the killings of Australian missionary Graham Stewart Staines and his two sons at Manoharpur village in Orissa's Keonjhar district.
However, State Home Secretary Ajit Kumar Tripathy could not confirm whether the decision to summon the team was taken by the state government or the Justice Wadhwa Commission, the one-man panel probing the killing.
The Orissa government had already referred the matter to the Centre seeking a CBI inquiry into the incident. The National Commission for Minorities had also recommended a CBI inquiry into the Manoharpur incident.
