The Rajasthan High Court today disposed of a petition filed by the wife of gangster Anandpal Singh seeking a CBI probe into his death but allowed her to file a fresh plea in a Churu court.
During the last hearing, the court had sought a reply from the CBI about the status of the state government's recommendation for a probe by the agency in the encounter case.
Singh, 47, who was wanted in several cases including murder, was shot dead on June 24. His body was kept in a freezer for nearly three weeks as his family demanded a CBI probe.
The CBI in its reply said the central investigative agency had decided not to take up the case as it did not find it eligible for probe.
The court, however, allowed the petitioner, Raj Kanwar, to move to the District and Sessions Court in Churu with a fresh petition in case of any grievance.
State counsel S K Vyas assured the court that the police investigation in the two cases was being conducted fairly and impartially.
