Nearly a week after Gurgaon Chief Judicial Magistrate Ravneet Garg’s wife Geetanjali was found murdered,the girl’s parents today approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court demanding suspension of the CJM.

The family has alleged the CJM’s involvement in the murder of Geetanjali and an FIR has been registered against the CJM and his parents. The CJM has also been questioned by a special investigation team. Geetanjali’s brother Pardeep Aggarwal on Wednesday submitted a representation in the office of Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul alleging “mishandling of the case” by the Gurgaon police.

The family has also said that the police did not even record Ravneet Garg’s statement immediately after she was found dead. They did not confiscate his mobile phone or search at his residence,giving him sufficient time to destroy evidence.

In the letter to the Chief Justice,Aggarwal has alleged that Garg was trying to pressurise the police and “hindering fair investigation” of the case. “The position would remain the same,even if investigation is carried out by any other agency,” the family members have submitted.

Aggarwal has requested that Garg should be immediately suspended,so that his sister could get justice. Aggarwal also met Justice Hemant Gupta,the Inspecting Judge of Gurgaon sessions court.

Geetanjali was found dead with bullet injuries in a park behind the high security Police Lines area of Gurgaon last week. Although police initially said it appeared to be a case of suicide,her family alleged that she was murdered.

The Haryana government has recommended a CBI probe into the murder of Geetanjali Garg.
