Court raps police for shoddy murder probe
A Delhi court has rapped the Delhi police for its shoddy probe in connection with a murder case and acquitted the accused of the killing saying it was unfortunate that senseless killing of a human was going unpunished.
The court noted that the testimonies of the witnesses were unreliable and the probe was shoddy and therefore the conviction could not be brought on the accused. The court then acquitted Krishan, a resident of South Delhi, of the charges of murder and arms act.
“Ocular evidence can not be used to convict a person for such serious offence. The investigation in this case has not been from crime to criminal but from criminal to crime, in the sense that first the alleged criminals were apprehended and then the entire investigation exercise was carried out,” the court said.
