New Delhi, Dec 17 (UNI) A local court today directed ACP Ram Gopal Naik to file a status report in fashion designer Mona Suri murder case in Greater Kailash on December 22.
The court also asked the ACP why the evidence has not been recorded in this matter.
On August 11 last, 35-year old fashion designer, Mona Suri, was set afire by two unidentified men on motorcycles outside her house in Greater Kailash Part-II. Suri succumbed to her burns after battling for life for over two months. She was reported to have suffered multiple-organ failure.
Mona's relatives had alleged the involvement of one of her husband's colleagues, Rachna, in the crime. According to Mona's brother, Taranjeet Bawa, her husband, Naveen, was a manager at a tour and travel agency, where the accused was also an employee.
However, Rachna's father refuted the allegations, claiming it was Mona who used to threaten his daughter to stay away from Naveen.
Mona's family had submitted an application in the court of the Metropolitan Magistrate Tarun Sehrawat on December 4, following which the Station House Officer (SHO), Chittaranjan Park Police Station, had appealed before the court on December 11 and submitted the case file as per the court's direction. After the perusal of the case file, the court decided to call the ACP.
Mona's father, Manjeet Bawa, had earlier filed a petition in the court in which it had been alleged that crucial evidence, which was otherwise available immediately after the victim's death, had not been collected by the investigating officers to weaken the prosecution's case.
