Court rejects plea to inspect second charge-sheet in Ishrat case
A CBI court here on Monday rejected IPS officer Satish Verma’s plea seeking permission to inspect the supplementary charge-sheet in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate D R Vyas held in his ruling that Verma had no `locus’ (right) to demand inspection.
Verma had not made it clear in his application on what grounds he wanted to see the charge-sheet, the judge said.
This was Verma’s second plea filed soon after the court rejected his first application for a copy of the charge-sheet.
He had said he wanted the copy for pursuing legal action against those named in this second charge-sheet. When the court refused to give a copy saying it had not taken `cognisance’ of the charge-sheet yet, Verma requested permission to inspect it.
