Terming premature a petition seeking proper investigation into the Jyoti murder case, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday disposed of the matter with directions to Haryana police to expedite the investigation. Advocate Jayender S Chandail had filed the petition that came up for hearing before a division bench comprising Chief Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain. The petitioner had sought directions to the Haryana government to properly investigate and arrest the culprits in the case wherein an FIR, dated November 22, was registered under Section 302 of the IPC at Sector 5 police station in Panchkula. The petitioner told the court that Jyoti was found murdered on road in Sector 21, Panchkula, on November 22 by the police. A politician from Doon constituency in Solan, Ram Kumar Choudhary, was in direct contact with the victim. It was further submitted that Choudhary had introduced the bank account of Jyoti in ICICI bank, Baddi, and a hefty amount of Rs 30,000 per month used to be deposited in her account. He alleged that despite the fact that Panchkula police had all the records, they were silent on the issue.

Fortis Hospital, Mohali today announced that Absorb, the world's first drug eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS), is now available at the hospital and is the first in the region to have launched it. The first surgery using Absorb was successfully conducted today on a 40-year-old male patient.
