New Delhi, November 29

The Supreme Court on Monday lifted the curtain on the death case of DIG Joginder Singh Anand, 38, as it dismissed a CBI petition challenging the verdict of the High Court of Punjab and Haryana acquitting his wife Indu Anand, their son Sumanjit Singh Nikki and their nephew Sandeep Singh Sandy.

The DIG was a relative of the top BJP leader, Maneka Gandhi. Sumanjit was 17 and Sandeep 18 at the time of the incident. “The request for special leave is rejected. Pending requests are eliminated de, ”said Judge Vikram Nath and Judge MM Sundresh, dismissing the CBI’s petition against the High Court’s March 23, 2017 verdict.

The order came after lead lawyer Kapil Sibal, representing Indu Anand, pointed out that the main witness, domestic helper Darshan Lal, was instructed by the CBI to implicate Indu and other family members.

“The family has suffered trauma for so long. Indu is now 78 years old. The HC judgment is very well written. The CBI has clearly crossed the line, ”said Sibal. DIG Anand was reportedly found “drowned” in Lake Sukhna, Chandigarh, on the night of July 12-13, 1983. Based on Darshan Lal’s testimony, the CBI alleged during a family feud at their home in Sector 3, the DIG was injured and was presumed dead. He was thrown into a lake, resulting in his death by drowning, he alleged. – TNS
