Bharatpur: Almost a month after communal violence in Rajasthan's Bharatpur district claimed 10 lives and left 21 others injured, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) started its probe and took statements of many people over the past two days, police said Thursday.

People from the Gujjar and Meo communities clashed in Bharatpur district's Gopalgarh town Sep 14 over a piece of land, with one group claiming that it was for a burial centre and the other insisting that it was for a pond.

"CBI officials arrived in Gopalgarh Wednesday and started recording statements of the people concerned in the case," a police officer, who did not want to be named, told IANS.

The officials also visited the nearby villages. "The records of various FIRs filed with the police from both the sides have been handed over to the agency," said the officer.

A team of Central Forensic Science Laboratory had recently gathered forensic evidences from Gopalgarh. The state government had ordered a CBI probe into the violence.

Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi had Sunday paid a surprise visit to Bharatpur.

Gandhi, accompanied by union Minister of State of Home Affairs Jitendra Singh, met the families of some of the men who were killed in the violence.

The Congress party's state unit, police and district administration officers were kept out of the loop and were completely unaware of Gandhi's visit.
