No CBI probe into Shuhaib murder case: HC cancels Single Bench order
Kochi: Kerala High Court Division Bench has ordered that CBI probe is not required into Shuhaib murder case. The Division Bench order came on the petition filed by the state government against the Single Bench order that directed to hand over the investigation to CBI.
The High Court accepted the government’s argument that the state police is investigating into the case efficiently and that no CBI probe is necessary in the case. Division Bench also found out that it was a hasty action of the Single Bench to leave the case to CBI and that the order is legally invalid.
Earlier, former Single Bench judge Justice Kemal Pasha handed over the case to CBI based on a petition filed by the family of Shuhaib, who was a Youth Congress worker. Over Rs 50 lakh was spent for bringing a Supreme Court lawyer to oppose CBI probe in the case.
