Rampal acquitted: Disappointed with shoddy police probe, says Hisar court


Hisar, 31 August(Wishav Warta): A Hisar court that acquitted self-styled godman Rampal in two cases for lack of evidence on Tuesday has expressed disappointment with the shoddy police investigation.

The judgement by judicial magistrate (first class) Mukesh Kumar in his judgement read, “The whole case is an example of the worst investigation. The prosecution despite having every canon of law failed to follow the proper procedure prescribed in the Criminal Procedure Code and the Indian Evidence Act.” The court said even as the assistant public prosecutor during the course of hearing claimed that the while incident was videographed, the investigating officer failed to place on record any video recording.

It is recommended that investigation officer(s) should be well trained as every acquittal should be taken as the failure of justice delivery, the judgement says. The court observed that investigating/prosecuting officials responsible for such acquittal must be identified and responsibility should be fixed for such errors committed during the investigation.
