Constable death: Plea in HC for CBI probe
A plea calling for a CBI probe into the death of Constable Subhash Tomar was filed in the Delhi High Court on Wednesday. The constable died of a cardiac arrest, reportedly brought on by injuries sustained during violent protests against gangrape of the 23-year-old student. The petition, which is likely to come up for hearing on January 4 before a bench headed by Chief Justice D Murugesan, sought the probe alleging contradictions in statements of Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, eyewitnesses and the medical expert.
