Top cop submits report in techie case
The city police commissioner on Friday submitted a report before the Karnataka High Court with regard to the progress made by the Special Investigation Team, constituted to trace Kumar Ajitabh, a techie who has been missing since December 18.

Justice A S Bopanna was hearing a petition filed by Ajitabh's father, Ashok Kumar Sinha, who had moved the court, seeking directions for a CBI inquiry in the case.

Commissioner T Suneel Kumar stated that the investigation was in progress and that two senior officers, including Additional Commissioner of Police Rakesh and sub-inspector Somashekhar, have been deputed to meet Ishanth Sinha, an advisor to the National Investigation Agency in matters related to Internet Protocol Detail Records.  

Sinha's report is awaited, and a status report will be filed before the court once it is received, the commissioner stated.

The bench orally observed that the police was on the right path in the investigation, and stated that the SIT needs to take a proactive approach in the case.

The petitioner's counsel, however, asked the court to transfer the investigation to the CBI.

To this, the bench said all cases are not similar and a CBI investigation does not assure results in one or two days, and  adjourned the hearing to  February 8.
