Govind Singh – is charged in the two-year murder case of Congressional Leader Davendra Chourasia. PHQ had ordered the head of the STF, Vipin Maheswari, to guarantee his arrest on the instructions of the Supreme Court of DGP VK Johri, taking seriously the failure of the state police to arrest the defendants. At the previous hearing, the high court had also taken ‘serious note’ of the alleged harassment of a judicial official by the Damoh Police Superintendent and asked the DGP to investigate the accusations made by the Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ).
The ASJ, which is conducting a trial in the cases involving Govind Singh, the husband of BSP MLA Rambai Singh, has presented him as a defendant in the murder case under section 319 of the CrpC (Power of Attorney to Proceed Against Other Persons who appear to be guilty of a crime), according to agency reports. The judge had indicated in his February 8 order that he was being pressured by Damoh SP and his subordinates.
SC was listening to the pleas of Devendra Chaurasia’s son and the state government seeking the cancellation of the bail granted to Davendra Singh in another case. The court said the ASJ has held that he could be subjected to an “unpleasant incident” in the future.
