Chinmayanand case: SC directs UP to set up SIT to probe law student’s allegations

DD News
The Supreme Court today directed the Uttar Pradesh government to set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by an IG-rank officer, to investigate the harassment charges levelled by a Shahjahanpur woman law student against former Union minister Swami Chinmayanand. 

It also ordered the SIT to look into the two cross FIRs filed in the case, one by the woman's father and another by the institution where she was studying. The apex court asked the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court to constitute a special bench to monitor the investigation in the two FIRs.  

After interacting in-chamber with the woman and her parents, a bench of justices R Banumathi and A S Bopanna issued directions to the state to provide police protection to her parents and family members till further orders and explore the possibility of admitting the woman and her brother in another college at Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh.

The woman had gone missing after levelling allegations against Chinmayanand in a video and was later found in Rajasthan by UP police. The matter has been listed for further hearing on Thursday.
