New Delhi, Aug 5: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has initiated a probe into the murder of Finnish national who was found dead in Goa in January 2015. The agency started its inquiry on Saturday, a day after it filed an FIR in the case that was earlier being investigated by the Goa Police.

The case was handed over to the CBI after the Panaji bench of Bombay High Court rebuked the Goa Police for its shoddy investigation into the murder of Finnish national, Felix Dahl and directed the agency on July 6 to make a probe into it. Dahl was found dead in the intervening night of January 27 and 28, 2015, near a sea-view hotel in Patnem Canacona in south Goa.

The court’s move came after Dahl’s mother Minna Pirhonem informed it through a petition that the Goa Police was not properly probing the case and declared it an accidental case during the investigation. She said that the Goa Police was showing his son’s death (murder of Finnish national) as an accidental death due to falling on the road. (IANS)
