KOLKATA: The Central Bureau of Investigation [CBI] is to submit to the Calcutta High Court on Tuesday its report on the events leading to the death of Rizwanur Rahman, the computer graphics teacher, whose body was found lying by the side of the railway tracks near here on September 21, 2007.
The agency had been directed by the Calcutta High Court on October 16, 2007 to investigate the death and submit its report within two months.
But the date was pushed further on December 17, 2007 following a petition by the agency’s counsel before Justice Soumitra Pal seeking more time to give in the final report.
The CBI was then directed by the High Court to submit its report by January 8. It had earlier registered a case of murder under Section 302, and cases under Section 506 and 120[B] against Ashok Todi and some others on the basis of an FIR filed by members of Rahman’s family.
Mr Todi, an influential city businessman, was reportedly against the marriage of his daughter, Priyanka to Rahman. The latter was found dead a few weeks after his marriage.
The agency began its investigations on October 20, 2007 following an interim order of the High Court directing it to probe Rahman’s death.
Five senior city police officials including the then Commissioner of Police were removed from their posts on October 17, 2007 in the wake of suspicions of their involvement in the case.
