The Supreme Court bench comprising of Chief Justice of India, Justice A.S. Bopanna and Justice V. Ramasubramanian on Friday extended by six months the time for the inquiry commission to conclude the probe and submission of final report in Hyderabad encounter killing of 4 men accused of gang rape and murder of a veterinarian on December 6, 2019.

This is the second occasion wherein the Apex Court had granted six months time to the Commission for submitting its final report.

The Apex Court had on earlier occasion constituted the Inquiry Commission for inquiring into the circumstances in which the four accused persons namely, Mohammed Arif, Chintakunta Chennakeshavulu, Jolu Shiva and Jollu Naveen, were killed in Hyderabad on 6th December 2019.

The Commission so constituted is headed by Mr. Justice V.S. Sirpurkar (Retd.), former Judge of the Supreme Court as Chairman along with other members namely Ms. R.P. Sondurbaldota, former Judge of the Bombay HC and Mr. D.R. Karthikeyan, former Director of the CBI.

The Court while constituting the said Commission directed it to submit its report within a period of six months from the date of the first hearing in the matter which had to be fixed by the Chairman of the Commission.

However, when the case came before the bench on 24th July 2020, an instant application for extension of time in filing of the final report was moved before the Court. Subsequently, the Bench granted six months further time to the Commission for concluding the probe and submit the final report.
