Delhi police registers 3 cases in Jessica case
New Delhi, July 6 (UNI) The Delhi Government submitted before the Delhi High Court that the Delhi police were probing not only the lapses allegedly committed by investigating police officials but also their connivance in facilitating the acquittal of the accused in the Jessica Lal murder case.
Mukta Gupta, standing counsel, yesterday informed a Division Bench of Justice Vijender Jain and Justice Kailash Gambhir that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted to probe the lapses in the murder case had so far registered three cases.
The cases included one against socialite Bina Ramani, a key witness in the case, for allegedly filing a false affidavit about her nationality.
Ms Gupta further submitted that SIT had registered another FIR against Chandigarh-based doctor JS Bedi for allegedly issuing a fake medical certificate to Vikas Gill, one of the accused in the case, who used it for exemption from personal appearance in the trial of the case.
She also apprised the court of the status of the on-going probe into lapses in the investigation of the case in response to a suo motu queries made to the Delhi police after acquittal of the accused in the case in February this year.
The Bench later transferred the matter to another Division Bench hearing the appeal filed by the city police challenging acquittal of the accused persons.
