New DelhiThe Supreme Court, hearing the 17-year-old girl’s suicide case, has refused to accept the plea of ​​the Tamil Nadu government. The Supreme Court said that it will not impose any stay on the central probe agency and the CBI can continue its investigation. The Supreme Court has also issued notice during the hearing on the petition filed by the state DGP in this matter. It is alleged that the girl was forced to convert to Christianity and due to this she committed suicide. The top court has said that there are two aspects in the matter. One aspect pertains to certain observations in the High Court order and the other pertains to the order for CBI inquiry. The Supreme Court said that he would not like to interfere in the order given for the CBI investigation. But we issue notice on the first issue in which High Court has made some observations and we issue notice on that aspect. The DGP of Tamil Nadu has challenged the order of the Madras High Court in the Supreme Court. The court further said that the reply in the matter should be filed in three weeks. Former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi appeared for Tamil Nadu. The High Court had on January 31 directed the CBI to investigate the matter. The High Court had said that the CBI should investigate the matter independently and investigate the matter without being affected by any comments. The High Court had made strong remarks against the local police under which the local police had rejected the theory of suicide due to pressure for conversion. Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the state DGP, said that he is challenging both the aspects of the High Court order. Along with the remarks are also challenging the CBI investigation. The court questioned that one aspect is of remarks and the other aspect is of CBI investigation. Are you challenging both? Rohatgi then said that he is challenging both the aspects. Rohatgi said that the High Court has ordered on a daily basis. Pre-death statement is on record. This is no exception case. Don’t know why the case is being made bigger.
