SSC paper leak: SC dismisses plea seeking court-monitored probe

SSC paper leak: SC dismisses plea seeking court-monitored probe

Jalaluddin Khan had moved the apex court after the Punjab and Haryana High Court turned down his plea for a CBI inquiry on March 6.

The Supreme Court today sought the Centres response on a plea seeking a CBI probe into the Ballabhgarh mob lynching case in which 17-year-old Junaid Khan was stabbed to death on a train in June last year. Dismissing the plea for CBI probe, single bench had also observed that there was nothing to show that the incident has any national or worldwide ramifications.

In June previous year, Junaid, his brother and two cousins were attacked on a Mathura-bound train by a mob, which also hurled communal slurs at them.

Senior Counsel RS Cheema and Rebecca John, along with advocates Tarannum Cheema, Karthik Ashok and Smrithi Suresh appeared for the appellant.

Junaid and his cousins Hasim Moin and Shakir Moin were on the EMU train going from Ghaziabad to Mathura after Eid shopping on June 22. The investigating agency deliberately acted with undue haste because the crime had caused a nationwide outcry. The trial of the case was at present pending before the Faridabad court. It was also claimed that the offence under sections 153 (promoting enmity between different groups) and 505 (statements conducting to public mischief) of the IPC were excluded by the state police investigation to weaken the case.

Cheema said the probe agency deliberately acted with "undue haste" because the crime had "attracted huge nationwide outcry" and the investigation was so managed as to "minimise the damage to the marauders and to ensure that majority are released on bail and face no serious trial at all".
