State can’t interfere in probe: CBI


State can’t interfere in probe: CBI

Tribune News Service

Mohali, August 29

Opposing any intervention of the state police in the investigation of Bargari sacrilege cases, the CBI today filed its reply on the government’s revision petition in the CBI special judge court here.

In the petition, the government has sought a certified copy of the CBI’s closure report in the cases in question. In its reply, the investigating agency stated that the state had already handed over the investigation to them, thus it had no authority to intervene in the probe.

Earlier, the CBI had filed its closure report in the court on July 4. The CBI magistrate had denied the state government a copy of it.

Sources said in its reply, the CBI today opposed any kind of intervention by the state government in the investigation of three sacrilege cases — the theft of Guru Granth Sahib from Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village on June 1, 2015; putting up of objectionable posters in Bargari and Burj Jawahar Singh Wala on September 25; and the recovery of torn pages of a “bir” from Bargari on October 12.

The CBI maintained that only it could investigate the case and the state was neither the complainant nor the accused in any of the cases so it should not be given a copy of the report. The next hearing date is September 14.
