The High Court has taken suo motu cognizance of the Ankita Singh murder case in Dumka, Jharkhand. A bench headed by the Chief Justice has also summoned the DGP and the Chief Secretary along with the files related to the matter. Along with this, the court has ordered to provide security to the victim’s family.
Significantly, after the Dumka massacre, there is a heated situation in many districts of Jharkhand. Many organizations are demanding the most cruel punishment to Shahrukh accused of killing Ankita. So at the same time, the Bharatiya Janata Party has accused Chief Minister Hemant Soren of appeasement. At the same time, independent MLA Saryu Rai has given a big statement on the Ankita murder case. He said that such culprits should be shot at the crossroads.
Jharkhand CID DSP Sandeep Kumar Gupta said that we have the team of Forensic Science Laboratory, the team of Finger Print Bureau and the team of CID. We are collecting evidence. Evidence will be collected and handed over to the court as soon as possible. At the same time, there was a ruckus about the name of SDPO in this case, after which SDPO Noor Mustafa has been removed from the investigation.
On August 23, a person living in the neighborhood in unrequited love, sprinkled petrol on the girl student and set her on fire. She was sleeping in the house at the time of the incident. The attack took place around 4.30 am on Tuesday. The girl told in her statement that in the morning accused Shahrukh was standing in front of the window of the room. He was holding a can with a flammable liquid and a match.
The police officer said that the accused threw flammable liquid into the room and burnt the curtains. He threw even more fluid inside the room so that she could not escape. Noor Mustafa said she was badly trapped inside. She was rescued by her family and neighbors and taken to Dumka Medical College and Hospital, which assessed that she suffered 95 per cent burns.
