Amid upvaas, hymns and prayers marking the first anniversary of the mysterious deaths of two boys — Dipesh and Abhishek Vaghela — from the Asaram Gurukul in Ahmedabad last year, parents and sympathisers on Friday expressed their discontentment over the way the investigation is being carried out by the State CID in the case.

The CID, investigating the deaths of two boys, has said that “black magic” may have been practised inside the ashram.

Reacting to the way the case has been handled, Praful Vaghela, father of Dipesh, said, “Even after the Chief Minister’s assurance last year that the culprits would be brought to book within no time, there is no movement in the case.”

“This is a government which acts to the tunes of Asaram, then why would it listen to us? We want the CBI to look into the matter and bring out the facts,” he added.

“The police has enough evidence but they are not acting upon it,” said Subramaniam Iyer, advocate representing the case, adding that the Gujarat High Court declined their request of handing the case to the CBI. State CID has been investigating the case since July 22, 2008.
