PANEL SET UP BY SC TO INVESTIGATE ENCOUNTER OF 4 RAPE-MURDER ACCUSED IN HYDERABAD SEEKS MORE TIME TO INVESTIGATE

The Judicial panel appointed by the Supreme Court last year to investigate the alleged fake encounter of four rape-murder accused in Hyderabad has filed an application before the Supreme Court seeking more time to complete the investigation, which got delayed due to COVID 19 pandemic.

The panel, headed by former Supreme Court judge, Justice VS Sirpurkar, has requested the court to grant six months to complete the probe. 

The panel, further highlighting the present situation leading to the delay in investigation, submitted: “The Government of India has extended the lockdown from time to time, severely affecting the inter-state movement. Though the lockdown restrictions have been relaxed now, the situation in Hyderabad has further deteriorated. Several persons working in the premises allocated to the commission were found to be COVID positive. There are no other premises available for the commission to hold hearings.
