Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court today issued show cause notices to Principal Secretary Home and Director General of Police for non-compliance of its earlier order into an alleged custodial death of a youth in Barabanki.

A division bench comprising Justice Abdul Mateen and Justice V K Dixit passed the order on a writ petition filed by Ram Naresh of Barabanki whose son Sushil Verma allegedly died during police interrogation.

The petitioner sought a direction from the court that the case should be investigated either by CBI or any other independent agency.

The writ petition was filed in July and the state government counsel was directed to file a reply but no instruction for reply were sent by Barabanki district police.

"Let a notice be issued to Principal Secretary and DGP of UP and SP, Barabanki, to show cause why inspite of specific order of the court dated July 31 last, instructions have not been sent and counter affidavit (reply) not filed," the court said.
