It opposed the contentions of Chaudhary that the chargesheet was incomplete. The police added that all the relevant documents on which the prosecution was relying had been attached with the chargesheet. "The police are fully competent to further investigate the matter under section 173 (8) of CrPC. The police have sufficient evidence to prove the involvement of the accused in the commission of crime," they said.

Chaudhary, on Monday, had applied for bail in the court of chief judicial magistrate (CJM) Bhawna Jain on the ground of filing of an incomplete chargesheet in the murder case. He contended that it was on record that police also took hair and blood samples of the accused but no report in this respect was attached with the chargesheet.

"Whatsoever the result may be, once the prosecution draws samples as stated above, the accused has the right to know the outcome of the same. The handwriting report attached with the challan is also inconclusive," Chaudhary submitted through his counsel AS Sukhija.

The arguments on the bail application will take place on Thursday.
