The matter was brought before a court by Judges Vineet Saran and Aniruddha Bose. The court said we do not see any solid ground to interfere with the High Court’s order for CBI’s investigation into the matter. However, taking into account the facts in the matter, we have directed the IWC to investigate the matter independently in accordance with the law and not to be affected by any observations made in the order of the Allahabad High Court.
In this case, an FIR was registered on February 12 under various sections, including section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The High Court had ordered an investigation by the IWC to investigate the matter. The High Court, in its car, had said that the FIR registered on the complaint of the deceased’s brother claimed that policemen had arrived at Yadav’s house on February 11 and detained him to implicate him in a false case.
The High Court, in its ruling, noted that police records stated that Krishna Yadav was captured while riding a motorcycle. During this he had fallen and because of this he was injured. The High Court had also said that according to police records, Yadav was taken to the police station where he had previously been given first aid. The doctor referred him to the district hospital, but he had died when he got there.
