Expressing surprise over the manner in which pieces of letter purportedly written by the lone accused Gopal Das were recovered from a septic tank, he wondered as to how the dismissed policeman managed carry the letter for so long.

According to a former state police chief, the police should have searched the pockets of Gopal Das immediately after he was caught, Nanda said, and wondered as to how the accused dumped and flushed it in the wash room.

Stating that he was worried over the probe, he and asked as to how Naba Das will get justice.

Noting that the death of leaders like Madhavrao Scindia and Rajesh Pilot remained a mystery, while the accused were caught immediately after Indira Gandhi’s assassination and the purpose of their act became clear.
