A day after Assistant Director General of Police (ADG) Alok Raj formed two special teams of FSL and CID to assist the SIT in the murder case of the minor girl at Patwa Toli in Gaya, the FSL team has collected evidence from several places.
"We have collected evidence from likely suspected places including house of the victim," a Gaya district police official said.
Alok Raj said the police are committed to investigating the case with an open mind.
Last week, the SIT was constituted by Gaya Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajeev Mishra following protests by the weaver community along with local residents after the police arrested victim's father and his friend last Thursday, for "allegedly killing her over an affair outside the community".
Pramila Patwa, a leader of the weaver community, said they want a CBI probe.
"We are not ready to believe the police that the girl's family killed her and that it was an honour killing. We insist on a CBI probe."
Patwa said the girl's family should be provided a compensation.
Gaya Weavers' Association President Gopal Patwa said: "We have requested President to Prime Minister for a CBI probe."
