The prosecution on Saturday opposed further investigation into the 2006 murder of an NRI, Pankaj Trivedi, as requested by a witness before a Sessions Court here.
According to public prosecutor Sudhir Brahmbhatt, the investigating officer (IO) in the case, V D Gohil, submitted an application in this regard, saying he had completed his investigation into the case before filing the chargesheet. A witness, Girish Doshi, had demanded further investigation into the case, primarily contending that the identification parade of the accused was not done.
The next hearing in the matter has been kept for January 5. Trivedi was allegedly beaten to death with a baseball bat near Ellisbridge Gymkhana on June 15, 2006. Police had nabbed five men in the case who were said to be followers of Swadhyay Parivar, a spiritual organisation in Ahmedabad.
Trivedi was said to have been murdered for speaking against Parivar's head Jayshree Talvarkar, who is addressed as "Didi" by her followers.
