The Bombay High Court on Tuesday pulled up the Maharashtra DGP for not following its orders pertaining to investigations in the case of a missing child and his absconding father.

The division bench of Justice Bilal Nazki and Justice A R Joshi has summoned DGP SS Virk over his failure in submitting an investigation report in Ulhasnagar resident Preeti Chugh’s case. Her husband Bunty Chugh had allegedly fled with their four-year-old son Sujal in November 2008.

During the last hearing,the court had directed teh DGP to file a status report on the investigation.

However,the court was annoyed to see that the report submitted was by a Deputy Commissioner of Police when the court had clearly stated in its order on August 4 that it wants a report from the DGP. “We are not going tolerate this nonsense,” justice Bilal Nazki said. Virk has been asked to be present in court on Wednesday and explain his conduct. The report filed by the DCP was in Marathi.
