Sowjanya case : CID will take time to submit final report

If the judgment in the Delhi gang rape case has been delivered within nine months of the incident, the CID which is investigating into the Sowjanya rape and murder case that shook the entire district , has still not submitted its final report. The investigation agency has said that it needs still more time for that.|

Speaking to The Canara Times, Jagadish, DySP of CID said “ It will take much time to submit the final report.The report will be submitted to the District Court after several rounds of deliberations with higher officials.” “ We cannot set any time frame for the investigation. We are submitting a few reports of the investigation to the court today,” he said.
Two officials of the CID had arrived in Belthangady on September 15, Sunday and were in the district since the past three days bringing in hopes that the report may be submitted soon . But now, the hopes have been dashed.
