Chief judicial magistrate Jasbir Singh has asked the Gurgaon police to produce the investigation report in the Ruchi Bhuttan suicide case by July 25.
The court took note of a complaint filed by the victim's family on the 'shoddy' probe by the police. It has also directed the investigation agency to conduct an unbiased probe into the case.
Meanwhile, senior officers said they have not received the court order. "We have not received any instruction from the court yet. If we get any order, we will take proper action," said Maheshwar Dayal, DCP (east), Gurgaon.
On Wednesday, Ruchi's family submitted her diary, written in 2007, to the police.
The diary has mention of the alleged torture meted out by her stockbroker husband Sumit and his relationship with Meera Chopra, a model and cousin of Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra. Sumit is in judicial custody at present while an arrest warrant has also been issued against Meera.
"According to Sumit's call details, he had spoken to Meera on June 29, negating his claim that their relationship had ended before his wedding to Ruchi," said Preeti Gambhir, the deceased's sister. Earlier, Ruchi's mother Sudha Gupta had written to Haryana director general of police RS Dalal, seeking his intervention in the case.
