Dr Naresh Kumar Mangla v. Anita Agarwal, Criminal Appeal Nos.872-873 of 2020

Court: Supreme Court of India

Issue: Can a CBI investigation be ordered even after submission of chargesheet?

Held: Wherever a charge-sheet has been submitted to the court, even the Supreme Court would not ordinarily reopen the investigation especially by entrusting it to a specialized agency. However, in a proper case, when the Court feels that the investigation by the police has not been in the proper perspective and that in order to do complete justice, where the facts of the case demand that the investigation be handed over to a specialized agency, a superior court is not bereft of the authority to do so.
