The High Court has taken the initiative to seek answers in spite of the journalists calling for a CBI probe into the matter. The court has taken cognizance on the fact that the police have not made any dent in the investigations yet.
They also took into consideration the fact that 6 days have passed and tall claims by the Mumbai police went flat that they would crack the case in two or three days.
The Journalists' Union who were protesting the murder and seeking justice have supported the High Court's decision saying that their demands have been "vindicated." The journalist's representative also pointed high possibilities of the Mumbai police being hand in glove with the underworld. This nexus emerged when Mumbai ACP Anil Mahabole was transferred for his suspected links with the underworld.
The Court has also asked the Advocate General to be present in the meeting. The High Court was based on two PIL writ petitions by two separate people, which were clubbed together taking cognizance of the fact and slammed both the state government and the Mumbai police.
On Wednesday, three persons were detained by the Mumbai police in connection with the murder. They were let off on Thursday after initial questioning with no tangible inputs coming from it.
