Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Mar 3 (ANI): Former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has demanded a CBI probe into the abduction and killing of twins--Devansh and Priyansh--from Chitrakoot last month.          
"Keeping in view the demand of the family and the general public, I request the state government to facilitate a CBI probe in this case,” Chouhan wrote to Chief Minister Kamal Nath.
Senior BJP leader and former chief minister Chouhan also expressed grief and said that he met the family of the deceased children.
The five-year-old twins were abducted at gunpoint from their school bus inside their school campus in Chitrakoot on February 12.
The bodies of the deceased were found lying near a river in Uttar Pradesh’s Banda district on Sunday. Police said the abductors killed the boys even after receiving the ransom.
In the wake of the tragedy, protests erupted in Chitrakoot, following which prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC had to be imposed in the area to maintain peace and law and order. (ANI)
