The Kanpur Bar Association has demanded that the probe into the alleged murder of Joint Magistrate Pratibha Gautam by her husband be handed over to the CBI. “The probe into the murder of the Joint Magistrate should be given either to the CBI or any other judicial officer,” said Kanpur Bar Association head Tarunendra Kumar Bajpai.
“We have also written a letter to the SSP of Kanpur in this regard,” Bajpai said. The Association also demanded strict action against those who showed negligence in handling her body.
“The police transported the body for autopsy in a tempo and in the post-mortem house, nobody attended to it properly. We demand that those who carried the body in a tempo be punished,” advocate Revant Mishra said.
