Mizoram Police have asked for sanction to question all men stationed in the 39th Assam Rifles camp at Mimbung in connection with the suspected murder of a rifleman Ajit Rai there last month.

Senior police officials said about 30 men are posted there, and questioning would enable them to establish the sequence of events leading to the death.

An officer with the 39th Assam Rifles, however, said, “The investigation is over from our side. The police themselves and the postmortem report are saying that it is a suicide.”

Rai on August 18 died of gunshot wounds at the paramilitary camp in Mimbung, located in Mizoram’s eastern Champhai district. His elder brother Atul has alleged Ajit was killed by his seniors.
