A Delhi court has summoned the joint commissioner of Delhi Police to explain why the forensic reports have not yet been filed before it in a case in which former MP Dhananjay Singh and his wife Jagriti have been made accused after their domestic help was found dead in their house.
The court issued the summon as it could not begin hearing of arguments on framing of charges in the case due to the absence of forensic reports. Police were to file the forensic reports on Tuesday. The court asked the joint commissioner to appear before it on the next date of hearing on September 24.
The SHO of Chanakyapuri police station filed a status report before the court, but said FSL reports were still awaited. The court then pulled up the police and summoned the joint commissioner to explain the delay in receiving the FSL reports. Singh, a former MP from Jaunpur constituency in Uttar Pradesh, and Jagriti, a dental surgeon at a government hospital in the capital, were arrested in November last year after their domestic help was found dead in their house.
