Sexual assault case: Delhi High Court dismisses Daati Maharaj’s plea

New Delhi | The Delhi High Court Wednesday dismissed self-styled preacher Daati Maharaj’s plea for review of its decision transferring probe into the rape case against him to the CBI.

A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao passed the order on Maharaj’s plea seeking review of the court’s October 3 order. The court had on October 3 transferred the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the plea of a woman, who had alleged that she was sexually assaulted by the preacher.

The high court had said that the manner in which the probe was carried out by police “casts a shadow on the investigation”.
