CBI finds loopholes at Crime Scene Investigation
As per the report published in India Today, CBI teams today visited the crime spot and reported loopholes in the police investigation. The report said the CB, with the help of locals, found out that the crime spot is located on a trail used by locals as a shortcut. As per police, the crime spot was located at an abandoned spot, said the report.
After examining the trail closely, the CBI team established that the path is used frequently as it did not have any grass. Hence, the team appeared unconvinced over the fact that such heinous crime can escape human eye at such a spot, further added the report.
These facts go against the theory given by the HP Police SIT in its probe. The police SIT had concluded the case saying the entire crime including gang-rape, torture, and murder was committed on the spot.
Another team of CBI today re-examined the body of Suraj Singh, Nepalese accused killed in police custody on the night of July 18. The body was returned to the hospital after the post-mortem.
As per the local police Raju, another accused killed Suraj following a scuffle in the lock-up. Raju allegedly smashed Surja’s head on the floor and died of access bleeding, according to the police.
