SC rejects plea of CBI probe against Asaram

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a PIL seeking a court-monitored CBI probe into an alleged sexual assault case against self-styled godman Asaram Bapu.

A bench headed by Justice AK Panaik also turned down the plea for guidelines for fast-track trial of offences against minors saying it is for the legislators to frame the law.  The PIL was filed by Chennai-based DI Nathan through advocate N Rajaraman.

The petitioner also sought a direction to the home ministry to ask ‘all district SP-level officers across the country for objective investigation by a police team of female investigators sensitized to deal with the offences involving sexual assault of child or juvenile.’

‘We are not legislators. You go to legislators with your grievances,’ the bench said.
