Ranchi police on Friday questioned three senior judicial officials in connection with a case of cheating and forced conversion to Islam brought by a national-level female shooter against her husband, a rare instance of serving judicial officers being interrogated in a criminal case.

Tara Shahdeo, 27, had lodged a case against her husband Ranjeet Singh Kohli alias Raquibul Hassan Khan for duping her into marrying him and then trying to coerce her to embrace Islam.

Following up on her allegations that powerful people were involved, police questioned principal district judges Pankaj Srivastava and Nageshwar Prasad and additional district judge Veena Mishra.

“They admitted that they had talked to Kohli on the phone but never extended any kind of favour to him,” said deputy superintendent of police Deepak Ambastha.
