Chandigarh, November 24

Acting on a plea seeking CBI probe into a court-monitored CBI probe into the murder of Delhi Civil Defence volunteer Rabia Saifi, the Punjab and Haryana HC today issued notice to the investigating agency and the government.

As the petition filed by father Sameed Ahmad and another petitioner through counsel Ajay Kalra came up for a preliminary hearing, Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan fixed February 17, 2022, as the next date in the matter. “Reply, if any, be filed in the meantime, with advance copy to counsel opposite,” Justice Sangwan asserted.

Rabia, 21, was stabbed to death on August 26 in Faridabad. An FIR for murder was registered at the Suraj Kund police station in Faridabad. The parents had initially approached the SC, seeking a CBI probe into her death. But the SC asked them to approach the HC concerned.

The plea alleged that incorrect and misleading facts were mentioned in the FIR to conceal the truth to save and shield the real culprits. Despite the fact that the cause of action in the matter arose within the territorial limits of Delhi, the FIR was lodged in Haryana. — TNS
