cbi: Will form SIT if CBI fails to nab person who posted clips abusing judiciary, says HC | India News – Times of India

VIJAYAWADA: The Andhra Pradesh HC on Tuesday said it will constitute a special investigation team if the CBI doesn’t show any progress in apprehending ‘Punch Prabhakar’, who has been posting abusive, contemptuous and derogatory videos against the judiciary, reports Srikanth Aluri.
The HC bench headed by Chief Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra and justice Lalitha Kanneganti granted 10 days’ time to the CBI to prove its bonafides in the case, failing which they will either refer the matter to the SC or constitute a SIT independent of the CBI.
Expressing displeasure over social media intermediaries for not taking action on time, the bench asked them if it’s not their responsibility to remove abusive content immediately after investigating agencies registered a crime. The observation came after N Ashwani Kumar, standing counsel for HC’s registrar general, said social media intermediaries removed abusive content posted by Prabhakar only after the registrar general’s letter.
