The Gujarat High Court on Thursday granted the CBI two months' time to complete its probe into the criminal case lodged in connection with the 25 thalassemic children from Junagadh testing HIVpositive last year after undergoing blood transfusion at a private blood bank inside Junagadh Civil Hospital.
A division bench passed the order after the probe agency said on Thursday it needed more time to complete the probe in the case.
The entire episode of the thalassemic children getting HIV infection allegedly during blood transfusion at the Junagadh hospital due to negligence of authorities had surfaced in September last year.
Investigation in the case was handed over to the CBI last month by the HC after it found the police probe unsatisfactory.
The next hearing in the case has been kept for September 27.
