The Supreme Court today gave notice in a request looking for the exchange of the examination for a situation concerning the 2017 passing of an understudy of National Law University, Jodhpur from the state police to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) [Neetu Kumar Nagaich versus State of Rajasthan and Ors]. The Bench of Justices Rohinton Nariman, Navin Sinha, and BR Gavai gave notice in the request recorded by the mother of the expired understudy. The Court, while fixing the issue to be heard in July, said that it would hear the State of Rajasthan first to know why the examination had not advanced in three years, since the understudy’s demise in 2017.
In her supplication recorded under the watchful eye of the Supreme Court, the solicitor says that she is compelled to move the Apex Court looking for an autonomous request because of an “unpreventable sensible trepidation that the lazy and careless examination and arraignment of the moment FIR is an aftereffect of likely arrangement to shield some high, strong and persuasive individual (s).” The applicant asserts that there have been no endeavors made by the police to capture the guilty parties. It digs into the parts of the examination that the police are yet to investigate.
In 2019, the Rajasthan High Court, on being drawn nearer by the applicant, coordinated the constitution of a Special Investigation group (SIT) to test the issue. The solicitor has hence requested an exchange of the case to the CBI, battling that the current case satisfies the measures set somewhere near the Supreme Court in its decisions with respect to when a case gets fit to be moved to CBI.
