Bombay HC summons additional chief secretary over slow progress in Pansare murder case

Bombay High Court has summoned Maharashtra Home Department's additional chief secretary to explain the cause of the slow progress made into the Govind Pansare murder case. 

A bench of Justices S C Dharamadhikari and B P Colabawalla said, the state has been reduced to a laughing stock by adopting elementary methods in probing Pansare's killing. 

Asking the secretary to appear before the court on 28th March, the court said it is a tragedy that judiciary has to intervene to push the state to efficiently probe each and every case. 

It said that a perception has been created that certain people can get away and remain un-investigated only because they enjoy a certain patronage. 

The bench also directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), probing the 2013 killing of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, to tie-up all lose ends in its investigation without further delay. 

The high court has been hearing a plea filed by the family members of Dabholkar and Pansare seeking a court- monitored probe in both the cases.
