The Punjab Government today moved a fresh application in a special court here, seeking directions to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to clarify certain ‘material facts’ and produce some documents in connection with its revision petition in the Bargari sacrilege case.

According to sources, the government sought certain documents, including a copy of an affidavit which the investigating agency had filed in Punjab and Haryana High Court in connection with the case. “The state government also sought copy of a communique through which the CBI was informed about withdrawal of the government’s consent for further probe by the agency,” said the sources.

Pertinently, after being denied a copy of the CBI closure report in the case by the court of special judicial magistrate, the state government had challenged the decision through a revision petition in the CBI special court.

Today, the judge ordered the agency to file a reply on the government’s application on the next date of hearing on September 30 and produce related documents on record.

Notably, the CBI, which was entrusted with the investigation by the SAD-BJP government, had filed its closure report in three cases of sacrilege on July 4.
