Nearly two months after a High Court bench acquitted all those convicted by the lower court for his son's murder, a man has moved an RTI plea before the High Court seeking to know what steps the Chief Justice's office took on his application that he had sent prior to the judgment apprehending "miscarriage of justice".
According to details, Rakesh, son of Balubhai Thakkar from Surat, was killed in May 2004. Later, the Surat Sessions Court convicted all the eight accused in the case and sentenced them to life imprisonment. They challenged their conviction in the HC.
Around 9.30 am on the same day, Thakkar sent a letter to the High Court Chief Justice's office through fax, a copy of which is available with The Indian Express, claiming he had got "definite" information that some "setting" was done in the case. However, the division bench pronounced its judgment on June 25 and acquitted all the convicts.
