Former Chief Minister and leader today sought an "in-depth" investigation into the alleged custodial death of a robbery accused here.

Aniket Kothale, arrested by the Sangli city police on November 6, along with another man in a robbery case, died in police custody.

Seven police personnel were suspended in connection with the case.

The police had allegedly tried to burn his body twice to destroy evidence. Six people, including five personnel of the Sangli city police station, were arrested in this regard.

"There is no and order in Sangli and the entire state. The chief minister and the Director of General of Police should visit Sangli to get first hand information (about the case) and order in-depth investigation," Chavan told reporters here.
