    HC asks brother for fresh writ petition

    SATISH SHETTY MURDER CASE

    Court tells brother it cannot address his plea to stay CBI closure into the murder case, as his application addressed a possibly related land scam case.

    On Tuesday, the Bombay High Court (HC) refused to accept an application filed by Sandeep Shetty, the brother of slain RTI activist Satish Shetty, asking for a stay order on the closure report filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the murder case earlier this month.

    Now, Shetty will be filing a separate writ petition on Monday next week, asking for a re-investigation into the murder case.

    Shetty, the complainant in the case, had expressed regret over the sudden closure by CBI on August 13. He approached the HC last week requesting a stay order on the CBI decision, claiming there were several loopholes in its report.

    However, after going through the application filed by Shetty, the HC bench of Justices V M Kanade and P D Kode informed him that he had submitted an application dealing with the case of a land acquisition scam, allegedly committed by one reputed infrastructure development company and a real estate firm along the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. He was told that though there is a possible link between the land scam case and the Satish Shetty murder case, an application for a stay order on the CBI closure report could not filed before this bench, as it no power to hear the petition in the land scam case.

    The bench then suggested that Shetty file a separate petition.

    Simultaneously, the Pune Sessions Court that received the CBI closure report of the case from the Wadgaon Maval Magistrate's Court, will also take a further decision on September 22.

    Speaking with Mirror, Shetty said, "I was under the impression that both cases the murder case and land grab case were closed by CBI as the same thing, but it was only the murder case. Now, on Monday, I will appear with a fresh writ petition, requesting CBI to re-open the investigation into the murder case. We are preparing a draft of the petition and will file it on Monday with evidences before the HC bench."

    Shetty further said that they are also waiting for the decision from the Pune Sessions Court, before which the closure report is still pending. "We are also expecting this court to ask for a reinvestigation on September 22."

    "It is under the jurisdiction of the Bombay HC to reject or accept a closure report," senior CBI officials told Mirror, adding, "though the report calls for closure, the CBI can reopen the case at any stage. Shetty applied because he thought that the case related to the land scam was also closed. We will act according to further directions from the HC."

    No stay on Shetty murder case closure proceedings

    MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Wednesday directed the investigating officer in the Pune RTI activist Satish Shetty murder probe to explain an allegation that he was "pressurized by superiors'' to file a closure report in the case but did not stay the closure proceedings in a Pune court.

    The HC order by a bench of Justices V M Kanade and P D Kode was passed while hearing a petition filed by Shetty's brother Sandeep Shetty, who questioned the closure and wanted it set aside. He named Ranjeet Singh CBI director and other top officers including special director Anil Singh and joint director Keshav Kumar personally as respondents as well as the Investigating officer in the petition.

    The HC however after hearing preliminary objections raised by CBI counsel Hiten Venegaonkar did not issue notice to the CBI director and other officers. The closure report filed last month before a Maval magistrate is since pending for orders before a Pune sessions court.

    The directors did not act in their personal capacity and only the CBI must be named, the judges agreed.

    CBI to reinvestigate RTI activist Satish Shetty murder

    CBI to reinvestigate RTI activist Satish Shetty murder - The Hindu

    The CBI on Monday decided to reinvestigate the murder of Pune-based RTI activist Satish Shetty in view of new evidence recovered during the searches at the offices and residence of a prominent builder in January.

    The decision to close the murder case was taken in June 2014 — while the closure report was filed before the special court in August, the CBI sources said.

    They said the agency has decided to reinvestigate the murder after it recovered certain documents, indicative of possible missing evidence in the murder case, from a builder whose offices and residence were searched in January in a separate case registered in November.

    After registering the fresh case, the CBI had carried out searches at 21 locations in Mumbai and Pune in the premises of IRB infrastructure developer to probe allegations of land grabbing along Mumbai-Pune highway on the directions of the Bombay High Court.

    The CBI sources said the searches were an offshoot of the murder of Shetty, who had sought information on the alleged land grabbing by IRB Infrastructure developers.

    The Bombay High Court, on the request of the CBI, had handed over the probe to it to investigate allegations of land grabbing.

    The CBI had registered a case under various Sections of IPC related to cheating and forgery against Deepak Dattatrey Gadgil, who is the authorised signatory for Aryan Infrastructure (a subsidiary of IRB infrastructure) and 12 others, the sources said.

    The CBI had carried out searches at 21 locations, including the offices and residence of Gadgil and Virendra Mahaiskar, managing director, IRB Infrastructure. The premises of other 15 individuals were also searched, they said.

    Firm linked to RTI activist's murder has Pawar shareholding

    Union Agriculture Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar ought to be adequately embarrassed about IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd - a prominent Mumbai-based firm in which he and his wife Pratibha have investments of 1,000 shares each. This shareholding has been disclosed by Pawar in his assets declaration statement that is available on the prime minister's website.
    IRB Infrastructure, which has had a meteoric rise in the highway construction and toll roads business across the country in barely 13 years, made sensational news last week in connection with the murder of Talegaon-Dabhade-based Right to Information (RTI) activist Satish Shetty (38) on 13 January 2010.
    On 3 May, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) secured judicial permission to conduct a polygraph test on 10 persons, including IRB's Chairman and MD, Virendra Mhaiskar, in connection with investigations into Shetty's murder. Those who will also undergo the lie-detection test include IRB officials Deepak Gadgil (head of real estate) and Jayant Dangare (head of liaisoning) among a total of 13 persons.
