Subscribe to Oneindia News

Kochi, Aug 29 (UNI) Kerala High Court today orally observed that ''The CBI officers feel that they can take the court for a ride'', while considering a petition filed by Sister Abhaya's father complaining the inadequacy of the central investigating agency's investigation into the nun's murder case.

The court had directed CBI investigating officer A K Aggarwal to submit his explantion on the number of CDs received from the Forensic Science Laboratory, Bangalore on Monday.

Single Bench Judge Justice V Ramkumar made the oral observation while considering a petition filed by Sister Abhaya's father M Thomas.

Yesterday, the CBI had sought three days time to submit an explanation regarding the number of CDs on the narco-analysis tests conducted on Father Jose Puthrikae, Father Thomas Kottur and Sister Sephy last year.

FSL, Bangalore had informed the court that they had sent three CDs documenting the narco-analysis tests as against the CBI's claim that they got only one CD from the laboratory.

It may be recalled that 21-year-old Sister Abhaya's body was found in the well of the St Pius Convent at Kottayam in 1992.
