Dhaka further claimed that CCTV cameras, laptops and other such items have gone missing from her farmhouse in Haryana after her death.
Phogat (42) was the BJP leader from Haryana’s Hisar who became famous on TikTok. On Tuesday she was declared “brought dead” at the St Anthony Hospital at Anjuna in North Goa, a police officer informed, adding that she had died suspectedly of heart attack.
Anjuna Police had registered a case of unnatural death. However, in his complaint filed with the Anjuna police, Phogat’s brother claimd thata two of her associates murdered her in Goa.
Dhaka told reporters outside Anjuna police station, “We had asked her to stay away from them and return to Hisar the next day (after Ms Phogat spoke to her mother).”
He further claimed that the police have refused to register an FIR against the two persons. “If the FIR is not filed against them, we will not allow the postmortem to be conducted in Goa,” Dhaka said.
He further mentioned that the family members prefer the postmortem to be conducted at AIIMS in Delhi or Jaipur.
“She was a BJP leader for the last 15 years. We will also appeal to the Prime Minister to help us in getting justice for her,” he added.
