CBI directed to submit status report on Netai

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: The Calcutta High Court on Friday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to submit to it on April 5, a status report on the progress of its investigations into the firing on villagers at Netai in Paschim Medinipur district, killing nine persons, on January 7.

A division bench of Chief Justice J.N. Patel and Justice A.K. Roy asked the CBI to file charge-sheets against the accused within 90 days of the investigations. The case was handed over to the agency on February 22. The CBI informed the court that eight persons, arrested by the agency in connection with the violence, were goons hired from outside Netai.

The Supreme Court on Thursday turned down a special leave petition of the State government against the High Court's earlier order directing the CBI to take over the case.

The court was also informed of the Supreme Court's observation that certain comments by the former on the State's Criminal Investigation Department, that was earlier in charge of investigations, should not be construed as casting aspersions either on the department or any of its officials.
