CID faces HC ire in KPSC case

The court warned that it would hand over the probe to CBI.

During the hearing of a petition by B Raghu, Khaleel Ahmed, Suresh Kumar and 60 others, all of them candidates seeking a probe into the alleged irregularities, the Division Bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar directed CID to clarify why a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) had been entrusted with the probe when the High Court direction was that the case be probed by an officer of the rank of DIG.

The Court was also unhappy with the CID for not seeking advice of Single Judge Justice Ajit Gunjal in the investigation.

CID made a submission that DySP Shankarappa would head the probe and he would monitor it.
