The Calcutta high court said on Thursday that it would monitor the CID investigation into the Kamduni gangrape and murder case, and also questioned the justification of state chief minister Mamata Banerjee's fixing of a time frame for completing the probe.
A division bench comprising chief justice Arun Mishra and justice Joymalyo Bagchi directed that the court would monitor the probe into the gruesome incident, which occurred on June 7 and asked the CID to file a report on the progress of the investigation by July 30.
The matter would appear before the court on July 30.
At Barasat, a fast track court hearing the case today fixed July 12 for the submission of the chargesheet against six accused by the CID.
Yesterday fast track court judge Arpan Chattopadhyay, who yesterday had criticised the CID for filing an incomplete chargesheet which had names of three more accused missing, today expressed satisfaction after the probe agency submitted the case diary.
The CID counsel explained since the case diary did not have the names of the three other accused pending filing of the forensic report, the chargesheet did not contain the names.
The counsel submitted that an additional chargesheet would be filed against three other accused, one of whom is at large, as soon as the forensic report was available.
The fast track court was set up to try the accused in the gangrape and brutal murder of a college girl at Kamduni village on June 7.
