Jharkhand HC Not Pleased With the Progress of CBI’s Investigation into the Killing of a Dhanbad Judge

The Jharkhand High Court expressed its displeasure with the ‘progress’ of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation into the death of Dhanbad Judge Uttam Anand on Friday, January 14.

The High Court has also sought a narco test report on the accused persons in the case, which it will hear on January 21.

The CBI, which is investigating the murder, told the Jharkhand High Court a few days ago that the accused wanted to steal a cellphone, which led to the judge’s death.

The matter was being heard before a division bench of Chief Justice Ravi Ranjan and Justice Sujit Narayan Prasad, when the CBI officials made this statement before the court. The bench, however, was dissatisfied with the response of officials from the central investigation agency.

The bench stated that there was nothing new in the CBI’s investigation and that the latter came up with a new angle to drag the matter out.

“According to CBI officials, Judge Uttam Anand was assassinated for cell phone robbery. CCTV, on the other hand, paints a different picture. According to the CCTV footage, he was deliberately murdered “The Chief Justice stated.

According to CBI officials, they conducted a narcotics test and brain mapping on the accused but found nothing. The CBI has conducted a few additional tests and is awaiting the report, which will be received on January 10.

The court stated that because the CBI found nothing, this case is becoming a “mystery of unexplained case.” It went on to say that as a result of this, the accused are getting more time and that gathering more evidence will be difficult.
