The Calcutta High Court today rejected the plea for CBI investigation into alleged murder of Anis Khan (27), a former alumnus of Aliah University at Amta, Howrah.

In another ruling the court asked Manik Bhattacharya, Trinamul Congress MLA and now-sacked president of the West Bengal Board of Primary education to furnish details of all moveable and immovable assets of his family to the court by 5 July in connection with alleged corruption in recruitment of teachers in the primary and upper primary levels.

In Anis Khan case, rejecting the petition seeking CBI probe by the deceased student’s family, the Single Bench of Justice Rajsekhar Mantha today reposed faith in the SIT investigation into the alleged murder and quashed the petition of a CBI probe.

Salem Khan, father of the deceased leader, however, firm in his demand for the court-monitored CBI probe, told news persons that they would move the Division Bench of the Calcutta High court today challenging the Single Bench order.

The Bench however, asked the SIT to conclude investigation as soon as possible and file chargesheet rapidly.

Meanwhile, in the alleged corruption in primary teachers’ recruitment case, the former primary board president Manik Bhattacharya was asked to depose before the court of Justice Gangopadhyay today. He was asked to furnish details of his assets, including his wife, son, and daughter-in-law by 5 July. In another development, the Division Bench of Justice Subrata Talukdar refused a stay on the order of the CBI probe by the Single Bench moved by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education today.
