Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court on Monday dropped murder charges against all 12 accused in the killing of former Gujarat Home Minister Haren Pandya. The court has said that there is no evidence to press murder charges against the accused.

The court, however, said that they can be convicted for criminal conspiracy and attempt to murder.

The court also slammed the CBI for its 'washed up' and 'blinkered' investigations in the case.

A division bench of the high court comprising justices DH Vaghela and JC Upadhyay said the investigations by the central agency in the case were "washed up, blinkered and had left lot to desire."

Criticising the CBI, the court further said the investigating officer should be made accountable for such lapses which have caused injustice to the accused and wastage of public resources.

Rest at,
