Indore: The special CBI court on Thursday fixed the trial schedule from September 26 in the Madhya Pradesh IPS officer Narendra Kumar death case, involving suspected mining mafia member and sole accused Manoj Gurjar.
Special Judge Anupam Srivastava approved the trial schedule submitted by the central probe agency for September 26 and 27.
The CBI in its submission mentioned six names for trial comprising Chandrapal Singh, Rajkumar Singh, Ratan Yadav, Dilip Shivhare, Dr Jain Narayan Soni and Sachdev Singh.
The agency later told the court that the prosecution will file another trial list of witnesses. Defence counsel Mahendra Morya filed a petition under section 451, 457 of CRPC appealing the court to release the tractor-trolley (under which the officer was killed) to parents of Gurjar as it was their agricultural asset.
The court marked this plea for hearing on September 12. In another petition under section 91 of CRPC, Morya sought directions by to the CBI to provide phone call details of Morena Thana in-charge Raghuvanshi, cops of Barmore, former MP minister Rustam Singh's calls to another cop, besides transport department (RTO) related documents and licenses.
The Court will take up this matter on Friday. The accused was present in the court.
The Court has already framed charges against Gurjar, under section 304 (culpable homicide), section 353 (use of criminal force to prevent a government official from discharging his duties) of IPC and 181 of the Motor Vehicle Act.
Gurjar is accused of mowing down Kumar when the latter tried to stop the tractor trolley loaded with illegally mined stones in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh on March 8 this year.
