A Delhi Court on Monday issued notice through the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to a retired ACP of Delhi who has settled in the USA. Notice has been issued in a ten-year-old case. The retired ACP was the first IO of a case lodged at Police Station Sarai Rohilla.
The case was registered under the Information Technology Act in October 2014. After a period of eight years, Delhi police had filed the untrace report in 2023.
Metropolitan Magistrate (MM) Manuj Kaushal of Tis Hazari court issued notice to Anil Dureja through MHA for the next date of hearing (NDOH).
“Issue notice to Inspector Anil Dureja through MHA for NDOH,” MM Kaushal ordered.
The court said that the present matter is pending at the stage of consideration on the application of complainant for registration of FIR under Section 379/217/218 IPC.
An application was filed by the complainant regarding theft of his case property which was given to Dureja.
The Next date of hearing is May 28, 2024.
On August 5, 2023, the court was informed that a notice was issued to Inspector Anil Dureja with the report that he has retired and is currently residing in the USA.
In January 2023, the court directed all investigation officers (IO) to appear in person.
The counsel for the complainant submitted that URLs, mobile phones, laptops, and pen drives were given to the IO; however, the same has not been made a part of the untraced report.
The court was also informed that there are 8 IOs, out of which four are ACPs and four are Inspectors of Delhi Police.
