CBI commences probe into Ayodhya missing file cases



A CBI team led by Deputy Inspector General Zaki Ahmad met senior officials of the Uttar Pradesh government,including Home department officials, on Saturday and held detailed discussion on the Ayodhya title suits case, official sources said on Sunday. The CBI team handed a letter to the Home Secretary, seeking information on 20 points including which officials were posted in the Home department when the files had gone missing, who was in possession of the files at that time and what documents were contained in the files, the sources said. Later, the team visited Hazratganj police station, where a case was lodged by the State Government on July 9, and took a copy of the FIR.

On July 15, the High Court’s Lucknow bench asked the CBI director to submit an interim progress report on the issue before the court on August 24 — the next date of hearing.
The state government had recommended a CBI probe into the missing files on July 10.
