Gurgaon: A sessions court on Monday granted time till July 4 to the CBI to file a supplementary chargesh-eet in the murder case of a seven-year-old boy at a private school. Additional sessions judge J.S. Kundu granted time to the CBI after taking note of a fresh plea by the agency stating that the probe was underway and it needed one-and-a-half months to complete it.
The court also reserved its order on a plea of the 16-year-old accused in the case challenging the Juvenile Justice Board’s (JJB) decision declaring him as an adult. It said the order would be pronounced on May 21 and the trial in the case would begin on July 4.
Advocate Sushil Tekriwal, the lawyer for the victim, argued that the JJB’s order declaring the 16-year-old accused as an adult was “well-reasoned” and there was no fault and “nothing illegal” in the order. The counsel for the 16-year-old accused had challenged the JJB order, saying it was “bad in law” and passed without giving him proper opportunity to present his case.
