SC stays CBI probe on Telangana scholar’s torture
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed an
Andhra Pradesh High Court direction for a CBI inquiry into
alleged police torture of an university scholar in Telangana.
A bench of justices HL Dattu and CK Prasad stayed the
inquiry on an appeal filed by the state government challenging
the plea for a CBI probe into the alleged torture of Kakatiya
University (KU) research scholar Vukanti Yakub Reddy.
The apex court, while staying the direction, sought a
response of Reddy on the state`s appeal.
On January 6, the high court ordered a CBI probe after
taking a serious view of Warangal police allegedly using
third degree methods on pro-Telangana agitators.
A Bench, comprising Justice Ghulam Mohammad and Justice K
G Shankar, had directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to
conduct a detailed inquiry into the incident and complete the
probe within three months.
The court had expressed serious concern over alleged
rights violation by the police and wanted CBI to do a thorough
inquiry on the petition filed by Yakub Reddy who charged the
cops with torturing him during interrogation.
