Court directs CBI to continue probe into Vishnupriya’s death

‘Complete probe within six months and file chargesheet, if any offence is found’

The investigation into the death of former Tiruchengode Deputy Superintendent of Police R. Vishnupriya took a new turn on Thursday as the special court for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) here rejected the agency's closure report in the case and ordered it to continue the investigation with certain specific aspects.

The court has directed the CBI to complete the investigation within six months and file the chargesheet, if any offence is found. Chief Judicial Magistrate S. Nagarajan, in charge of the CBI special court, ordered the agency to continue the investigation in the case, on a petition filed by the parents of Vishnupriya — M. Ravi and B. Kalaiselvi — opposing the closure report filed in May this year. The CBI team had submitted its final report before the court in May stating that the DSP had ended her life and further action may be closed in the case.

The petition filed by the DSP's parents, opposing the CBI's closure report, said that it had several contradictions and the agency had merely reproduced the report filed by CB-CID that investigated the case earlier.
