The Delhi High Court rebuked the CBI for presenting the same report in the matter concerning the disappearance of JNU student Najeeb Ahmad that was placed on record last time, stating that the case was “not transferred to the agency for fun”.”There is nothing updated. It is the same report as given on July 17, said the Court.
“We have not transferred the matter to the CBI for fun,” the bench stated, adding that the report submitted on July 17 only displayed “cosmetic steps” being taken by the agency.
The matter wasn’t adjourned on the previous date to examine this two- and-a-half page scrap today,” the bench comprising of Justices G S Sistani and Chander Shekhar said to the agency.
The court directed the CBI to file a fresh status report before the next date of hearing which is on September 6, 2017.
The bench also stated that it lists matters for hearing “at the cost of others”.
“What was the idea of listing it today? Just to say the report has been filed,” it asked the CBI.
