Dhanbad judge hit-and-run case: CBI files chargesheet against 2 accused | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed chargesheet against two accused in the Dhanbad judge hit-and-run case, according to officials.
Judge Uttam Anand was mowed down by an auto-rickshaw on July 28. CCTV camera footage showed that the judge was jogging on one side of a fairly wide road at Randhir Verma Chowk in Dhanbad when a heavy auto-rickshaw veered towards him, hit him from behind and fled the scene, killing him.
The CBI has charged auto-rickshaw driver Lakhan Verma and his accomplice Rahul Verma. They are both in judicial custody.
The Jharkhand government had initially formed an SIT to probe the case under the instructions of the high court. However, the state government later decided to hand over the case to the CBI.
The Supreme Court had also taken note of the case and had asked the Jharkhand high court to monitor the probe
The CBI had dispatched a 20-member team under its ace investigator VK Shukla to probe the case. Shukla was recently awarded by the Union home ministry for being among the best investigators.
