The Madhya Pradesh high court on Tuesday declined to order a CBI probe into the alleged assault of RSS pracharak Suresh Yadav by the police on September 25.
FIRs in this regard have been registered at Balaghat district’s Baihar police station.
Advocate OP Yadav, president of Democratic Lawyers’ Forum, filed the PIL demanding probe through the Central Bureau of Investigation. A division bench comprising acting Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice Anjuli Palo declined from interfering into the submissions of Suresh Yadav on the PIL, considering “the matter is under investigation and at this stage no interference be made”.
“We find that except for submitting and contenting in the writ petition, that certain police persons are being prosecuted at the instance of politically powerful persons no cogent evidence or material is adduced as to why the investigation now undertaken by the special task force is not proper,” the court said.
“We find that the ingredients necessary for transfer of an investigation to CBI and the principals laid down by the Supreme Court are not fulfilled or available in the present case,” the court said.
