O R D E R

 

 

We have perused two reports dated 31.08.2013 and 30.11.2013 are taken on record. We have also perused the application dated 02.12.2013 filed by Dr. R.K.   Raghavan, Chairman, Special Investigation Team (SIT), Gandhinagar, Gujarat wherein he prayed for extension of service of Dr. K Venkatesham, IPS, Member with SIT, on existing terms.

 

The aforesaid reports shall be kept in a sealed cover.

On going through his report and of the fact that out of nine cases assigned to SIT by this court, Judgments have already been pronounced in six cases and trial in the remaining three cases is nearly completion, we direct that the attachment of Dr. K. Venkatesham with SIT shall continue until further orders, on existing terms

 

The Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, New Delhi as well as the government of Maharasthra are directed to issue appropriate notification forthwith.

 

Call the matter after two months.
