Lucknow: The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on Monday directed listing of the writ petition of UPCC chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi seeking a CBI probe in the case relating to arson at her house on July 15.

A division bench comprising Justices Abdul Mateen and Satish Chandra passed the order.

Meanwhile, it was contended on behalf of the state government that fair investigation was on and allegations levelled by the petitioner of political pressure in the probe are a fallout of some vendetta.

A rejoinder affidavit was also filed on behalf of Joshi against a counter affidavit filed by the state government during the last hearing.
