The Rajasthan High Court came down heavily on CBI for giving ‘differential’ treatment to the accused in Dara Singh fake encounter case in which a DIG and a BJP MLA were among those arrested, saying the agency’s objectives have been compromised and it was high time it was ‘shut down’. “It appears that accused in the same case are being given differential treatment by CBI. You people salute an accused, offer him tea and coffee and land him behind the bars facilitating his judicial custody whereas the same CBI gets police custody of other accused persons for the maximum time period in the same case,” said Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma. “The aims and objectives with which CBI was established have been compromised...and it’s high time when the agency needs to be shut down,” the court observed.
