A division bench comprising justices Indira Banerjee and S Munshi directed the state police to hand over the case to CBI noting that it has done little to trace the girl who went missing in September 2014 from Asansol in Burdwan district.

The bench in its order on Tuesday expressed anguish at the state police having failed to track a person who had allegedly called up the father of the girl and had reportedly claimed to know her whereabouts.
It express unhappiness that the police did little to investigate the role of two persons named by Noor Mohammed, the father of the girl, in his complaint to the police.
Mohammed in his Habeas Corpus petition before the high court had said he had taken his daughter to a doctor at Asansol from their home in Birbhum district on September 23, 2014. On their way back home, Razia went missing from Asansol bus stand, he claimed.
