Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court on Tuesday dismissed a writ petition filed by UPCC chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi seeking a CBI enquiry into arson in her Lucknow residence in 2009.
A division bench comprising Justice Srinarain Shukla and Justice S.V.S Rathore dismissed Joshi`s petition.
On July 15, 2009, Joshi`s Lucknow residence was set afire and the case was handed over to the local police.

Not satisfied with the police handling the case, Joshi had filed the petition for a CBI probe into the matter.
