Kerala High Court Rejects Plea for CBI Probe in Vandana Das Murder Case

The Kerala High Court dismissed a plea seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the death of Dr. Vandana Das, who succumbed to injuries on May 10, 2023, after an attack by Sandeep. Dr. Das’ parents had approached the court requesting the transfer of the investigation to the CBI, alleging inefficiency in the police probe.

However, the court refused to entertain the plea, citing a lack of evidence to doubt the integrity or credibility of the police investigation. Additionally, the court also rejected the bail plea of the accused. The State had opposed the request for a CBI probe, asserting that the police were conducting a thorough investigation. Further details regarding the court’s decision will be made available upon the release of the judgment to the public.
