Dhanbad: The death of Jharkhand judge in what was believed to be a hit-and-run case now has a twist in the tale. CCTV footage pointed towards a chilling murder and that has led to further investigations.

As the killing evoked shock and rage at corners of the society, Chief Justice of India NV Ramana said he had told the Jharkhand High Court and asserted: “We are aware of the case and we will take care,” reported NDTV.

Police have arrested the driver of the auto-rickshaw that hit District and Additional Judge Uttam Anand in Dhanbad, and an associate. There have sharp reactions from the Jharkhand High Court on the allegations of a delay in police action.

Justice Uttam Anand, who was on his morning run on Wednesday, was hit by “an unidentified vehicle” just 500 metres from his Dhanbad residence.

Security footage that has been uploaded online shows the judge jogging at around 5 am by a deserted stretch of road when an auto takes a turn and appears to go straight chasing him from back. The auto rams the judge and drives off unperturbed.

Two people – Lakhan Kumar Verma and Rahul Verma, have been arrested and the auto has also been seized from their possession. They’ve confessed to the crime,” Inspector General (Ops), Amol Vinukant Homkar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Homkar also said an FIR has been registered under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) (murder). “Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by City Superintendents of Police (SP) Dhanbad, has been formed. Crime Investigation Department (CID) and Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) team have also been deputed to help them in the investigation. The probe is on under the supervision of Sr SP Dhanbad and Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Bokaro,” the agency quoted Homkar as saying.
