Allahabad, Nov 11 (UNI) The Allahabad High Court has directed the CBI to investigate the Chaudhary Charan Singh P G College (CCSPGC) case in which police had broken the gate of the college and had resorted to firing, leaving a student dead and several others injured.

A division bench consisting of Justices Imtiaz Murtaza and R M Chauhan directed the CBI to submit its report within three months before the court for appropriate action.

The court asked to list this case in the first progress report.

The judges, however, directed that police officers named in the FIR be immediately transferred from Etawah.

The order was passed on a writ petition filed by Ram Gopal, an employee in the college, who had moved the Court seeking an inquiry by an independent agency.

The petitioner has alleged that the incident had taken place on January 9, 2008 but police had registered an FIR in this matter, when an order was passed by the magistrate. The police had submitted a final report in the matter to safeguard the high police officials.

The FIR was lodged against Siya Ram Saran Aditya, SSP Etawah, and Ram Pal Gautam, ASP Etawah, and others.
