Supreme Court refuses to entertain plea for CBI probe

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Tuesday refused to entertain a plea seeking a CBI probe into the recent killing of Uttar Pradesh Bar Council president Darvesh Singh Yadav at the Agra court premises and asked the petitioner to approach the Allahabad High Court.

A vacation bench comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and B R Gavai said that as far as the specific matter relating to the bar leader's murder is concerned, the petitioner would have to approach the jurisdictional high court.

The bench referred to the prayers made in the petition filed before it and said most were pertaining to the incident in which the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council president was shot dead.

When the counsel appearing for petitioner referred to another incident in a district court premises in Delhi, the bench said, "Please do your homework. File separate petitions. Your prayers are primarily dealing with one incident. You go to the jurisdictional high court".
