According to reports, based on a complaint by the family members of SI Nath, an FIR has been filed against Padmeswar Borkataki who is currently the officer in charge.

The family members of the deceased termed the incident as ‘abatement of suicide’ and lodged a complaint against Borkataki seeking an investigation into Nath's death.
