New Delhi, Oct 5: The Supreme Court Friday dismissed a plea seeking fresh investigation in the Kathua rape and murder case. The accused have filed petition for fresh investigation on grounds that the earlier probe was allegedly motivated.
A bench of Justices U U Lalit and D Y Chandrachud also dismissed a separate plea filed by two other accused in the case seeking transfer of the investigation in the matter to an independent agency.
The bench, while rejecting both the pleas, said the accused could raise this issue before the lower court during the ongoing trial.
The state police’s crime branch, which probed the case, filed the main charge sheet against seven people and a separate charge sheet against a juvenile. (Agency)
