CBI team denied food at Gandhinagar circuit house

AHMEDABAD: The state government has refused to feed the CBI! Or so it might seem from a letter that the agency has written to additional chief secretary (home) Balwant Singh. The letter from a senior CBI officer says that a probe team has been camping at Gandhinagar circuit house to investigate the Tulsiram Prajapati encounter case, and the Supreme Court has asked all states to extend logistic and infrastructure support to the CBI.

"As part of these investigations, our team is put up at the Gandhinagar circuit house, where the CBI has booked 20 rooms. But since the day they arrived here, the circuit house staff has not been giving them meals. When we drew attention of the authorities, they said that renovation work was going on in the kitchen," the letter read.
The team has had to make its own arrangement for food which has caused much inconvenience, a source said. When TOI contacted Bipin Shukla, the circuit house manager, he said, "renovation is going on for a very long time, and whenever there is a government event or a minister is expected, we put up a canopy and set up a temporary kitchen in the premises of the circuit house. But otherwise, there is no provision. This is the only reason why we are not able to provide food to the CBI team."
