Honeytrap: MPHC issues interim order

Indore, MP, Oct 21 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday issued an interim order – primarily covering four points – while hearing public interest litigation (PIL) submitted in the context of the high-profile honeytrapping case.
The petitioner’s counsel said that the basis of the two pleas was firstly to have the matter inquired into by the Central Bureau of Investigation or some other competent authority, secondly the fact that the head of the state dispensation’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) was replaced thrice and lastly the apprehension that the probe might be affected owing to names of persons in high places coming to light through media.

During an earlier hearing, the court clubbed the PIL owing to their similar nature. A notice was issued on October 4 to the government directing it to submit a status report by Monday. Expressing dissatisfaction over the document, justices SC Sharma and S Shukla said that no clear information was provided as to why the officers were reassigned. The Court ruled that this must not recur and a comprehensive status report be filed in a period not exceeding a fortnight. The agency inquiring into the case was directed to approach a capable laboratory for analysis of evidence and share the related results with the bench.

On October 1, the regime effected a third reshuffle in the SIT that is now led by Indian Police Service officer R Kumar and has Indore’s Senior Superintendent of Police RV Misra as a member.
