New Delhi: Supreme Court today transferred the Kunduli gang rape and suicide case to Orissa High Court for hearing.
Hearing a writ petition filed by Kunduli victim’s brother appealing for the CBI probe into gang rape of her sister by security personnel and her suicide, the apex court bench of Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit directed the Orissa High Court to hear the case.
Notably, the victim’s brother on Feb 7 had moved the apex court seeking CBI probe into the incident.
He said that he had no faith on the investigation carried out by Odisha police. He also urged the court to file a criminal case against the police and other administrative officials who allegedly conspired to prove the victim’s statement as false.
Earlier, he filed a case at the Koraput Sessions Court alleging that negligence on the part of several government officials in the matter led to the suicide.
Worth mentioning, five PILs have already been filed in Orissa High Court seeking CBI probe into Kunduli suicide.
