Jharkhand High Court on December 17, while hearing the Petition in the Dhanbad Judge Murder Case, reprimanded the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for its inability to give a specific and plausible explanation leading to the unfortunate incident.

Although this was not the first time that the High Court reprimanded CBI in this case. In October, the Court had commented that the Chargesheet filed by the CBI is like a novel and that the Agency had utterly failed to substantiate Charges against the Accused persons.

In another instance, the Court had said that CBI was working like the “Babus” while completing the Probe and submitted a “Stereotype Chargesheet”.

The CBI has filed several reports and yet, the Motive behind the Murder or the persons involved in the Conspiracy have not been figured out.

As per CCTV footage, on July 28, Judge Uttam Anand was jogging on a fairly wide road at Randhir Verma Chowk near the District Court when an autorickshaw hit him from behind and fled the scene.

Judge Anand was found by some people passing by and was declared dead when reached the hospital.

Earlier, Special Investigation Team (SIT) was handling the Case but later State Government handed it over to CBI which started its investigation on August 04.

Despite repeated assurances from the CBI, there has not been much progress in this Case.
