Sonali Phogat's assistant, his aide arrested for 'murdering her using obnoxious chemical'
The senior police official also said that the two accused in custody have confessed to feeding Phogat
The mystery behind the death of BJP leader Sonali Phogat in Goa was finally unraveled on Friday after police confirmed it as a case of murder due to drug overdose.
Goa Police have videographic evidence to show that Phogat was force-fed a 'deadly' concoction of synthetic drugs by two of her associates, Sudhir Sangwan and Sukhwinder Singh, which led to her death.
Goa's Inspector General of Police Omvir Singh said detailed investigations and questioning of those who were present at the club where Phogat was seen partying with Sudhir and Sukhwinder have revealed video recordings of the night in question.
CCTV images and video recordings show Phogat and her two associates partying at an Anjuna-based club. Of the many videos retrieved from the spot, two videos clearly show how a drink was being forced down Phogat's throat by one of the accused after which she went running towards the bathroom.
The senior police official also said that the two accused in custody have confessed to feeding Phogat "an obnoxious concoction of chemicals with her drink".
