The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken over investigation in the murder case of Geetanjali Garg, wife of Gurgaon chief judicial magistrate Ravneet Garg, who was found dead in the high-security Police Lines area.
CBI sources said a case was filed after receiving a notification from the Department of Personnel and Training.
The agency filed a case under section 302 read with section 34 of the IPC among other provisions naming Ravneet and his parents as accused.
While Section 302 of IPC relates to murder charges, section 34 relates to acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention.
Thirty-year-old Geetanjali was found dead on July 17. Her family had accused her in-laws of harassing her for dowry. They had demanded a CBI inquiry.
Sources said that under normal procedure, CBI re-registers FIR of the local police and since the police has named Ravneet and his parents, the agency has also booked them under the same charges.
