HC directs SIT to submit report on probe into Nayeem cases

, 10:13 PM IST

The Hyderabad High Court today directed the Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is probing into over 150 criminal cases against slain gangster Nayeem, to submit a report on investigation within three weeks. The court has adjourned the hearing for three weeks.

CPI leader Narayana filed a PIL demanding CBI probe into the crime world of Nayeem, while alleging that investigation by SIT was not progressing as it should be. In his petition, Narayana included Union Home Ministry, Telangana Home Ministry, Telangana DGP and CBI as respondents.

After hearing on Tuesday, the Court said it can’t order for an inquiry by CBI as of now, but will consider it after the SIT’s report and counter submission. (NSS)
