Bhopal: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has detained a woman friend of Zahida Parvez, an architect arrested for the murder of RTI activist Shehla Masood, informed sources said Friday.

Besides arresting Saba Farooqui, the CBI also recovered a motorcycle used in the killing as well as a diary said to belong to Zahida Parvez.

Shehla Masood was shot dead at her house compound Aug 16 last year.

The CBI on Tuesday arrested Zahida Parvez and Shaqib 'Danger' on charges of conspiring to kill Shehla Masood."The diary also put light on the role of a Bhopal BJP MLA who is under the CBI scanner," a source said.

The sources said that Saba Farooqui knew about Zahida Parvez's intention to kill the RTI activist.
