The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered an FIR and started investigation into the deaths of violinist Balabhaskar and his two-year-old daughter Tejasvini
The Kerala state government had last year issued an order transferring the case to the CBI. CBI DSP TP Anandakrishnan has been appointed as the investigation officer.
Balabhaskar's parents requested the government to transfer the case to CBI as they assume the death was linked to gold smuggling.
Balabhaskar's manager Prakashan Thampi was later arrested by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence in connection with gold smuggling
Balabhaskar and his family met with an accident at Pallipuram near Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, in the early hours of September 25, 2018.
While Balabhaskar and his wife Lakshmi were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, their two-year-old daughter Tejasvini, unfortunately, died on the spot. Balabhaskar died in the hospital on October 2.
