Probe to be conducted into Mumbai bus shootout: CM
October 27, 2008 20:48 IST
Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh on Monday said the Mumbai police would carry out an internal inquiry into the shootout incident in a Mumbai bus in which a Bihari youth perished to ascertain whether his killing could have been avoided.
"I spoke to the DGP and the Mumbai police commissioner and sought details. They will inquire into all aspects of the incident including how the armed man got into the public transport bus and whether his killing could have been avoided. We will submit the factual report to the Centre," Deshmukh told PTI.
He said such an internal inquiry was part of procedure following any shootout.
Responding to a question on Union Minister of State for Home Sriprakash Jaiswal's comment that the Centre had sought a report on the incident, Deshmukh, who is in his home town Latur, said he was unaware about it.
"May be it has gone directly to the state home ministry," he said.
"Their meeting was scheduled some time back on the recent happenings involving north Indians. Monday's incident just got added on their agenda," he said.
