Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today slammed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) over its tactics to obstruct the state government’s investigation into the Bargari sacrilege case with its “false statements” in the High Court, which had, in fact, verbally termed the agency’s actions as “contemptuous”.

Citing the High Court’s verbal observations of Monday, the Chief Minister said the CBI’s attempts to further delay and derail the probe into the sacrilege cases had exposed the Central agency’s malicious intent, but the state government would not allow it to succeed in its efforts to scuttle the investigations. After itself closing the case without completing the probe into the sacrilege cases, the CBI was now indulging in politically motivated acts to prevent the state from undertaking and completing its own probe, he said.

A government spokesperson said the Punjab and Haryana High Court had on Monday, while dismissing a review petition filed by one of the accused, had orally noted that “these actions of the CBI are contemptuous.”
