CBI sets 1-yr deadline to probe cases

CHENNAI: In a bid to restore some of the image it lost in cases like the Aarushi murder in Noida and the Sister Abhaya killing in Kerala, the CBI has set a one-year deadline to complete any probe. At a recent meeting of its law officers, branch heads and zonal heads in Delhi, the agency also decided to speed up procedures so that trials could begin in two years.

As the first step, it has been decided that all cases under investigation for more than a year will be disposed of by March 31. The meeting took stock of inordinate delays that drag important cases for long.

With regard to the probe into the murder of 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar, daughter of a dentist couple in Noida on May 16, 2008, the agency is yet to come up with conclusions. On January 5, it moved the court for a narco analysis of Aarushis parents
