SC pulls up CBI on Manipur fake encounter case
New Delhi [India], July 27 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director to be personally present on July 30 when the alleged Manipur extra judicial killings case comes up for hearing next.
The division bench of the apex court headed by Justice Madan Bhimrao Lokur expressed its dissatisfaction with CBI's pace of investigation in the case today.
A petition filed before the top court had alleged that more than 1,500 fake encounters took place in Manipur. The PIL sought a detailed probe by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) and compensation to the alleged 1,528 fake encounter killings in Manipur from 2000 to 2012 by security forces and police.
The CBI said that the investigation agency was directed to file chargesheet in 20-25 cases by July 27 and three more by end of August.
CBI however failed to comply with the court direction today and sought one-two more weeks' time for it. (ANI)
