The father of IT student Shobhit Modi, who was stabbed to death near his Vasant Kunj house, today moved the Delhi High Court seeking a CBI probe into the murder, saying the police were handling the case in an "inefficient" manner.

The petition filed by Suraj Modi alleged that even after the lapse of 70 days, police were clueless and unable to crack the case.

Shobhit was fatally stabbed by some unknown assailants near his house at Vasant Kunj in South Delhi on May 5 and since then, police have been probing the case without any breakthrough, the father said in the petition.

Despite being provided with requisite information, the investigators, so far, have failed to establish the motive behind the killing of Shobhit, an IT student of Manav Rachna University at Faridabad.

The petition, which may come up for hearing during the week, has sought CBI investigation to unravel the case.

During the probe, police interrogated the father of alleged girlfriend of the victim after it was claimed that he had disapproved their relationship.

They also questioned a 23-year-old girl in connection with the probe following the scrutiny of the call details of the deceased.
