CBI registers case in Uttam Anand death case, probe begins

Ranchi: In an important development in the Dhanbad Judge Uttam Anand death case, the CBI has registered a case and would soon start its investigations.

The Jharkhand government had on August 1 recommended a CBI inquiry into the matter.

The CBI has now registered an FIR after the notification was issued by the Center on the recommendation of the state government.

On August 3, the Jharkhand High Court had also ordered a CBI inquiry into the matter.
