Hisar (Haryana), September 13: In the midst of the ongoing investigation into the death of actor and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sonali Phogat, her sister Rakesh has suspected a political angle in her sister's suspicious death.

"The truth will come out only after a CBI probe. We are not satisfied with the investigation by Goa Police. Goa Police was probing the case from a property angle. There could be some big people behind the murder. Sonali could be murdered on political grounds, so there should be an investigation."

She also thanked Khap Panchayats for putting pressure on the government to conduct a CBI probe into the situation.

"Khap Panchayats have given their full cooperation. Due to the Khap panchayats, there has been pressure on the Haryana and Goa governments at some places," Rukesh added.
