The Supreme Court of India on December 6, 2021 issued a notice regarding a plea filed by the mother of 14-year-old girl who was found hanged in her boarding school classroom in Uttar Pradesh, in 2020. The plea sought the transfer of case from Uttar Pradesh and Haryana to the Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) or Delhi Police.

The plea filed by the mother of the girl alleges that the girl was raped and murdered. The plea seeking the transfer in relation with two First Information Reports (FIRs), first one was filed in Uttar Pradesh regarding the death and alleged rape of the girl and second one regarding the abduction of the girl’s parents and two siblings in Haryana.

The Supreme Court Bench of Justice Ajay Rastogi and Justice A.S. Oka passed a notice regarding the transfer plea and declined the request seeking transfer of case from UP and Haryana local police to the CBI.

The petitioner who filed the plea via Advocate Shyam Manohar, stated in the plea that the local police of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana have not been working on the case and that even the High Court did not grant the petitioner’s plea for transfer of case.

The petition stated that the principal of the boarding school and the staff did not take any action to save the girl by calling the police or an ambulance and just kept the body of the girl hanging from the roof of the classroom.

The petition stated, “The crime that started with alleged rape and then murder of a minor girl and which was followed by other offences like 495, 120B, 380, 365, 506 IPC against mother, father, minor sister and brother of deceased girl.”
