A team of AIIMS experts led by Forensic Scientist T D Dogra arrived in Bhopal on Thursday to give their insights on this complex case. The agency has also questioned some persons with regards to the case. The case was transferred to the CBI as Madhya Pradesh Police could not figure out the motive behind the murder but suspected she was eliminated by some powerful persons against whom she had filed RTI applications. Shehla had earlier gone on a hunger strike in Bhopal in support of Anna Hazare‘s cause. She was also involved in other causes, including wildlife conservation.
