Court slams CBI for filing report in hurry during holidays

The Central Bureau of Investigation, represented by senior public prosecutor RK Saini, was slammed by the CBI special judicial magistrate Priti Singh for filing closure report in a hurry and during winter break.

During a hearing on the report submitted by the CBI last Wednesday, magistrate Singh asked Saini the reason for filing the report in such a hurry. “Why couldn’t you wait to file the report when the court opened?” she asked. “Where are the closure-report annexures?”

Saini replied it was a normal procedure for the CBI to file such reports in any of their cases. “It is not particular with Aarushi-Hemraj murder case,” he said.

Saini also told the court that the report was submitted as the “CBI wanted to clear all yearly back-log”. As Saini struggled for answers, the magistrate demanded the investigating officer be present for a hearing on January 7. The officer will have to submit the case documents, along with the case diary.
