The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) informed the Jharkhand high court on Thursday that they have received ‘certain leads’ in connection with the death of Dhanbad additional sessions judge Uttam Anand on July 28.

On September 23, the CBI informed the Jharkhand high court that Anand, who was run over by an autorickshaw while he was out for a morning walk in Dhanbad, was “apparently hit intentionally”. The two occupants of the three-wheeler, Lakhan Verma and Rahul Verma, were later arrested and the vehicle seized.

On Thursday, appearing before a division bench of chief justice Dr Ravi Ranjan and justice Sujit Narayan Prasad, the CBI told the court that they are interrogating the accused afresh, based on the “certain leads” discovered recently.
