NEWLY APPOINTED DGP Bua Singh today constituted a special investigation team (SIT) headed by SP crime Dinesh Chand Dubey to probe into the Meher Bhargava murder case.
Sending the right signal to the people of Lucknow, the DGP summoned SSP Ashutosh Pandey and other officers connected with the investigation to know the progress in the case. While constituting the SIT, the DGP directed the officers to make a breakthrough at the earliest. He told Hindustan Times that “more work” was needed to solve the murder mystery. After taking over charge on Monday, the DGP had announced that he would look into the case and if required a special team would be constituted.
The local police have so far not been able to solve the case, something which has been agitating the mind of the people.
With the constitution of the SIT, the DGP has given a clear message to the Lucknow police that he wanted results without further delay. With the Congress making desperate attempt to politicise the case, the DGP move is obviously also aimed at taking the punch out of the Congress drive.
Meanwhile, in an attempt to establish that the police-Pahadi encounter in Qaiserbagh recently was true, SSP Pandey claimed that the cops were hunting for a doctor who had operated upon Pahadi. The police had earlier claimed that Pahadi had suffered bullet injuries on his leg but had managed to give cops the slip.
The cops further claimed that Pahadi had got medical treatment from a doctor in Qaiserbagh later. The police claimed that the doctor was missing from his clinic and a search was on for him.
The SSP, however, could not specifically say about the doctor’s name and the place where the latter ran his clinic.
