The Allahabad High Court on Friday reserved its order on a pending public interest litigation, seeking Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the murder of two chief medical officers in Lucknow.
The hearing of the PIL, filed by a local lawyer Prince Lenin, was taken up before a Lucknow division bench comprising Justices Pradip Kant and Rituraj Awasthi. As per the earlier order of the court, the charge sheet, case diary along with entire records related to police probes in the murder of family welfare CMOs V K Arya and B P Singh were produced in the court.
On behalf of the state government, additional advocate general Jaideep Narain Mathur also produced the order in which further investigations of both the murder cases have been referred to the CBI by the state government. After perusal of these documents, the court reserved its order and directed the police not to proceed further in this matter.
The court also asked the lower court concerned not to proceed further on the charge sheets pending before it. The police after completing the investigations had filed the charge sheets of both the murder cases before the chief judicial magistrate court Lucknow.
