Written by: Staff

Patna, Apr 20 (UNI) Patna High Court today expressed anguish over the way inquiries were being conducted against police officers who had been made accused in criminal cases.

After hearing arguments on a petition filed by Bihar unit of Indian Medical Association (IMA) regarding law and order situation in the state, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Dr J N Bhatta and Justice S N Hussain asked why inquiries against the tainted police officers should not be conducted by an independent agency.

The court also asked the state government to apppoint special public prosecutors for speeding up trial of cases involving police officers.

The bench sought to know why approval had not been granted for initiating legal proceedings against some tainted police officers.

The next date of hearing had been fixed on May 11.

Altogether 376 police officers including 12 IPS officers had been made accused in 194 criminal cases.
