Shimla: Accusing police of shielding the "real culprits" in the gang rape and murder of a schoolgirl, residents of a Himachal Pradesh town on Friday blocked a national highway and surrounded a police station to demand a CBI probe into the case. Chief Secretary V C Pharka conveyed the decision of the government to the sub-divisional magistrate of Theog, Tashi Sandup, over phone and he later announced to the protesting crowd, in the presence of Chopal BJP MLA Balbir Verma, about the government's decision to hand over the probe to the CBI.

Expressing concern over hassles faced by the police in investigating the matter due to postings of different kinds of messages on social media, Zaidi said that people should desist from circulating unverified news and photographs related to the case as such things make investigation tougher for the investigation agencies. After 7 days of the incident that took the life of a 16 year old schoolgirl, and seeing the anger of the public rising slowly against the law and order of the city, Shimla Police finally made a decision to take the case seriously and formed a Special Investigation Team to take a closer look at the case.

The post and the pictures were later deleted.

Himachal Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) Somesh Goyal had earlier claimed to have solved the case with the arrest of all the six accused, but there were still doubts in the minds of some that the case was being hushed up by the police. He said that the police have found forensic, scientific, circumstantial and other incriminating evidences about the crime and entire mystery had been unearthed.
