The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the murder of veteran CPI leader Govind Pansare has released fresh sketches of an alleged assailant in the case on Saturday. Meanwhile sources say the police have also zeored down on a few groups and suspect that the accused could have fled to Karnataka or Goa after committing the crime.

Inspector General of Police, Sanjay Kumar Verma heading the SIT confirmed the development.

Sources claim the sketch was prepared based on the enhanced CCTV footage given by London and the descriptions given by Pansare’s widow, Uma. Uma is an eyewitness in the case.

On February 16, the 81-year-old activist was gunned down outside his house in Sagar Mala locality of Kolhapur city and five days later succumbed to his injuries at Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital. The police managed to procure CCTV footage of the near by areas but owing to its poor quality they were sent to London for enhancement. The footage given by London has given a new impetus to the probe which had hit a deadend.

“Immediately after the incident Uma helped us in preparing a basic sketch of the assailant but at that time she was not in the position to recall everything . After we received the enhanced CCTV footages from Lodnon, her help was sought again to prepare the new sketch,” an officer privy to the probe told The Indian Express.

“We have narrowed down on a few suspects and have leads that points that the accused might have fled to Karnataka or Goa. There are a few theories we are working on and we might get a breakthrough very soon,” the officer added.

With the various agencies failing to get a breakthrough in the case, in April the State government constituted a SIT to probe the case.
