New Delhi: The Supreme Court, on Thursday, closed proceedings against former Bihar minister Tej Pratap, son of jailed Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, in the murder case of a Siwan-based journalist.
The apex court had asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe allegations related to media reports featuring photographs and videos that showed Pratap, a former Bihar health minister, along with two absconding accused, Mohd Kaif and Javed, who are presently in judicial custody in the Rajdeo Ranjan murder case.
A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud considered the submission of Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi that the CBI has not found any incriminating material against the RJD leader.
The bench ordered closure of proceedings against Tej Pratap and gave the slain journalist's widow the liberty to have her plea revised if some incriminating material surfaces in the future.
