The Ghaziabad crime branch, which is investigating the Audi car crash case, is yet to send a report on its investigation to Ghaziabad court, over a petition filed by the doctor who is also the Audi owner.
The SUV had rammed an auto head-on on the intervening night of January 27 and 28 near Hindon Canal in Indirapuram area of Ghaziabad.
An application was filed by the Audi owner, Dr Manish Rawat, on April 13, a day after an alleged impostor, Syed Imtiyaz Qadri, was held at Nala Sopara police station in Maharashtra in connection with several snatching and robbery cases. The court had sought a report from the crime branch but the officials concerned are yet to file a report.
“The report could not be sent as there was a strike in the court,” said Jaipal Singh, case investigating officer.
Through the application, the doctor has requested the court to call for a report from the investigating officer about the type of case that has been made out, charges were pressed against him and the evidence available to them.
Rawat has filed the petition so that he may present himself at the court after studying the case diary and the report.
The doctor had earlier claimed that he was present inside the Audi during the accident but it was driven by ‘Ishaq Ahmad.’
During the case investigation, the officials came to know that Qadri had impersonated his co-tenant Ishaq Ahmad at the court to obtain bail, after surrendering as the driver of the Audi.
During the investigation, ‘Ishaq Ahmad’ turned out Syed Imtiyaz Qadri who allegedly misused the driving licence of his former co-tenant, who is a truck driver.
During the investigation, the crime branch has also added sections of cheating, forgery, providing false information and criminal conspiracy. The new sections are added apart from sections of 279 (rash driving), 304a (causing death by negligence) and 427 (causing damages) of the Indian Penal Code lodged at the Indirapuram police station.
