CBI seeks special courts in Goa
Panaji: The CBI has requested Goa government to give its consent for setting up special courts to exclusively try the cases being investigated by the agency.
CBI`s Joint Director Rishiraj Singh told reporters here today that a formal request had been made to Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, who had assured to give approval for special courts soon.
Singh said at least 42 CBI cases were pending in local courts in Goa, including the Scarlet Eden Keeling death case.
A sessions-level judge would preside over special courts. Neighbouring Maharashtra had already set up six such courts, he said.
"We just want concurrence of the state government as entire financial liability would be borne by the central government," he added.
