Chief Minister K Rosaiah, who held a high-level meeting to discuss the helicopter tragedy, spoke to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and requested that a probe by the CBI be ordered into the incident.
"The Union Home Minister readily agreed to the CBI inquiry and conveyed the decision to the Chief Minister," Sabita Reddy said after the meeting. She, however, added that the probe being conducted by the State Crime Investigation department would also continue.
"Since, many doubts are being raised over the helicopter tragedy, we decided to conduct a thorough inquiry from all angles so that the truth comes out," she said.
The expert committee comprises retired IPS officer and VIP Security expert M R Reddy and former DGCA H S Khola. The Committee would have to submit its report in 60-days, she said.
