The West Bengal Government had constituted the commission in the wake of mounting Pressure led by social groups demanding CBI probe in to the mysterious death of the graphic designer teacher.

Rehman’s mother Keshwar Jahan and his elder brother Rukbanur said that the High Court has already ordered a CBI probe, so there is no point in continuing with the Chakraborty inquiry commission.

Their counsel Kalyan Banerjee also said that the Rizwan death was a matter of investigation by a probe agency.

“Moreover, the inquiry commission has no right to question IPS officials, who are appointed by the Centre. The matter is likely to come up before a vacation bench on November 1,” Banerjee said.

Rizawanur’s body was found on the railway tracks between Bidhannagar Road and Dum Dum Junction on September 21, almost a month after his marriage to Priyanka Todi, daughter of a Hindu businessman.

The investigation agency has registered an FIR against Ashok Todi and others under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The West Bengal Government on October 17, ordered the transfer of top police officials of the State including, Kolkata Police Commissioner Prasun Mukherjee.

Mukherjee, and his two deputies - Gyanwant Singh and Ajay Kumar, along with Assistant Commissioner of the Anti-Rowdy section Sukanti Chakraborty and Sub-Inspector Krishnendu Ghosh were handed transfer orders as there were allegations against them of harassing Rizwanur.

According to media reports, some police officers, who were allegedly influenced by Todi, pressurised Rizwanur to end his marriage with Priyanka.

The CBI has been asked to submit its report in next two months. (ANI)
