Kota: A 32-year-old Intelligence Bureau official was found dead along roadside in Rajasthan's Jhalawar district, police said on Thursday.
The official identified as Chetan Prakesh Galav, who is posted in New Delhi, went to his parent's house in Ramganjmandi town on Wednesday morning, SHO of Jhalawar's Sadar police station Sanjay Prasad Meena said.
The official failed to reach his house in Jhalawar till late in the evening on Wednesday after which his family members started searching for him, he said.
He was found lying along the Bhawanimandi-Jhalawar road by his family members who rushed him to a hospital where he was declared brought dead, the SHO said.
The official's body was handed over to his family members after postmortem today for the last rites, another police officer Sanjay Prasad Meena said.
Exact reason of death could be known only after the post-mortem report is received, he said.
A case has been registered in the matter and investigation was underway, Meena said.
Senior Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Dineshwar Sharma is set to be appointed the next Intelligence Bureau (IB) director.
CBI sources said they have gathered enough evidence about the role of IB officers in the conspiracy behind the encounter but there are contrary views on whether sanction from Home Ministry is needed to prosecute Special Director Rajinder Kumar (now retired), and three other officers — P Mittal, MK Sinha and Rajiv Wankhede.
It claims some IB officials travelled to Israel and had direct links with Afghan intelligence which, it was found later, had links with another terrorist group from Kazakhstan.
