Nagpur: On October 17, 2016, Justice B P Dharmadhikari and Justice A S Chandurkar of the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court had directed the transfer of the investigation into the Eknath Nimgade murder case to the Central Bureau of Investigation since the State Police appeared to be helpless in this case.
Based on the directives of the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court, the officials and sleuths of Central Bureau of Investigation arrived in the city to probe the murder of Eknath Nimgade on December 5, 2016.
According to reliable sources, a team had visited the spot where the crime occurred.
It could be mentioned here that on September 6, 2016, Senior citizen and an architect Eknath Nimgade was shot dead in a lane adjacent to CA Road. The way Nimgade was murdered shook the entire city.
Apart from police personnel of Tehsil Police, cops of Crime Branch of Nagpur Police too had strived hard and had left no stone unturned in the probe. However all their efforts seemed to be an effort in-vain? The main perpetrator or the people behind the murder could not be ascertained.
Eknath Nimgade’s son who had his doubts about the probe conducted by crime branch had filed a petition and a plea to transfer the case to CBI. Accordingly the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court had considered his plea and had transferred the case to CBI.
The results of the probe conducted by CBI will alone unravel the perpetrator or perpetrators behind the murder of Eknath Nimgade.
