New Delhi, June 12

The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to entertain a plea of sacked IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt seeking to examine 11 additional witnesses in a 30-year-old custodial death case.

A vacation bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and Ajay Rastogi said a three-judge bench had already passed an order on May 24 on a similar plea and, therefore, it could not entertain the petition.

Senior advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for the Gujarat government, said the final argument is over in the 1989 custodial death case and the trial court had reserved its verdict for June 20. PTI
