In fact, CBI Inspector Vivek Srivastava, who reached Gorakhpur to investigate the matter, had reached here with his team only late on Thursday evening. On Friday, the CBI had called Manish’s friends present in Gorakhpur, Chandan Saini, Rana Chandra and Dhananjay Tripathi for questioning at 2 pm.

During this, Rana Chandra told the team that he did not even know Manish, but Manish was friends with his nephew Chandan Saini. Because of which he came to Gorakhpur.
Rana met Manish for the first time only after coming to Gorakhpur and Manish died the same night. After this, the CBI took detailed information from Rana Chandra about every single activity in this case from the day of the incident till now. While the two officers of the Inspector CBI kept on interrogating, the munshi, who went to Ramdhatal as an assistant, kept noting their statements.

Its CBI started questioning Chandan Saini in the second round. The team first tried to know from Chandan how his friendship with Manish happened. Chandan gave the same answer to the team that he had given to the SIT earlier. Told that he works as a film producer, while his Gurgaon friend Pradeep Singh is the event manager. In August, Chandan went to Gurgaon to meet Pradeep. At the same time, he had a casual meeting with Manish for the first time. Chandan had called Pradeep and Harbir to Gorakhpur, praising the city of Gorakhpur, but when the plan was made to come here, it was found that Manish Gupta of Kanpur was also coming with him. It was only after coming to Gorakhpur that I especially met Manish. At the same time, the CBI also asked Chandan Saini and Rana Chandra the reason for not registering an FIR by the police on the first day of the incident.
Dhananjay’s statement will happen on Sunday
In such a situation, the CBI will presently record the separate statements of everyone and match the statements of the SIT in the past. So that it can be known whether there is any change in the statements or all have remained the same from the beginning. However, the entire day of CBI was spent in recording the statements of two people. In such a situation, now the statement of Manish’s third friend Dhananjay Tripathi will now be recorded by the CBI on Sunday. Whereas on Saturday, CBI will record the statements of hotel owner Subash Shukla and manager Adarsh Pandey.
The CBI will also send notices to Manish’s Gurgaon friends Harbir Singh and Pradeep Singh and summon him to Gorakhpur for questioning.
CBI will also summon Harbir and Pradeep
At the same time, CBI will also send notices to Manish’s Gurgaon friends Harbir Singh and Pradeep Singh and summon him to Gorakhpur for questioning. Soon Harbir and Pradeep may also come to Gorakhpur. In such a situation, the CBI is currently engaged in finding the direction and condition of the incident by taking the statements of all the people related to this case. According to sources, in this case, it remains a challenge for the CBI to find the eyewitnesses of the incident. So that the real reason behind the police beating and Manish’s death can be known.
In the absence of murder evidence and eyewitnesses, the SIT was involved in murder and culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
CBI’s challenge to suggest murder and culpable homicide not amounting to murder
However, earlier, in the investigation of Kanpur SIT probing this case, it has been decided that Manish died due to beating of the police. The role of the hotel owner and manager was also found suspicious in the investigation of the SIT. However, in the absence of murder evidence and eyewitnesses, the SIT was involved in murder and culpable homicide not amounting to murder. In such a situation, solving this link will be the real challenge for the CBI.
CBI’s focus was on these points
