Expressing dissatisfaction with the CBI's investigation into the Killiroor sex scandal, a judicial magistrate on Monday directed the agency to conduct further investigation into it.
The direction was issued by The Chief Judicial Magistrate, PD Sarandharan, while considering a petition by Janadhipatiya Vanitha Sangattana, seeking further investigation into the case involving the rape and subsequent death of a minor girl, Shari S Nair in 2005. She was allegedly taken to different places and raped by many persons after being promised roles in television serials.
Shari finally died after giving birth to a baby girl.
Directing further investigation, the court said that the agency had failed to investigation certain important points.
Earlier, the CBI filed a chargesheet before the CJM court against nine accused -- alleging offences punishable under criminal conspiracy, rape, procuring of a minor girl, criminal intimidation, cheating and causing disappearance of evidence.
The petitioner contended that the final report submitted by CBI was incomplete and sought a direction for further investigation into the cause of Shari's death.
