Jharkhand govt recommends CBI probe into alleged killing of Dhanbad Additional District Judge

Jharkhand government has recommended a CBI probe into alleged killing of Dhanbad Additional District Judge Uttam Anand. A statement from Chief Minister’s office said that the death incident of the judge Uttam Anand has been transferred to CBI for further probe. Anand died in the coal city on July 28 after being hit by an auto-rickshaw while he was on his morning walk.

Jharkhand police filed a murder case in the incident after CCTV footage of the incident showed a vehicle deliberately swerving on an empty road to knock down the judge while he was out for a morning jog. The auto-rickshaw used in the incident, which was allegedly stolen from Dhanbad, was later recovered from the neighbouring Giridhi district. Two persons, identified as Lakhan Kumar Verma and Rahul Verma have been arrested and the auto was seized from their possession.

Police said they have confessed to the crime. The decision to recommend a CBI probe comes a day after a Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, took suo motu cognizance of the incident and directed the Jharkhand chief secretary and director general of police to submit a complete report in a week.
