New Delhi, Aug 29 (UNI) Father of a trainee has moved the Supreme Court seeking early hearing of his petition for CBI inquiry into the murder of his son Sonu Chahal, in which Jagdish Singh, the coach of boxer Vijeyender Kumar who has won bronze medal in recently concluded Olympics in Beijing, is one of the accused.

Sonu, who was a trainee of Jagdish Singh had died under suspicious circumstances in the Sports Authority of India (SAI) hostel at Bhiwani in Haryana on March 12, 2006.

Charan Singh Chahal, father of Sonu is seeking CBI inquiry into the murder of his son, in which according to him their are three main suspects, including Jagdish Singh who has been selected for the prestigious Dronacharya awards.

The local police has given Mr Singh a clean chit.

According to the petitioner, though he had named the local SHO as an accused, the name of the SHO was not mentioned in the FIR by the local police delibrately to shield the culprits.

Chahal has come to the apex court after the Punjab and Haryana High Court declined his plea for immediate disposal of his petition for a CBI probe in the matter.

He had filed his petition in the apex court yesterday.

He has alleged that the local police is colluding with the culprits to protect them.

The boxing coach is due to get the award today as he was unanimously selected for the prestigious award by the selection committee following selection of his disciples for the Olympic games. SAI is however relying on the report of Bhiwani SP, who has said no case is pending against Mr Singh and he has not been named as an accused in the charge sheet filed by the police in the court.

According to the SP report filed in the High Court in 2006, Sonu had committed suicide under the influence of liquor as he was depressed because of (failure in love affair with a fellow female boxer).

The apex court is likely to fix the date of hearing within next few days.
