Jharkhand judge death: High Court says case sensitive, needs to be probed

The Jharkhand High Court has taken suo motu cognizance of the killing of a district judge in Dhanbad while he was on his morning jog

The Jharkhand High Court has taken suo motu cognizance of the killing of a district judge in Dhanbad while he was on his morning jog, news agency ANI has reported.

"A judge has been killed. Whether it is an accident or murder we need to find it. It is a very sensitive case and hence the court has taken suo moto cognizance," advocate general Rajiv Ranjan told ANI.

Dhanbad judge Uttam Anand was reportedly hearing some high profile criminal cases.

CCTV footage showed that Anand, district and sessions judge-8 of Dhanbad court, was jogging on one side of a fairly wide road at Randhir Verma Chowk early on Wednesday when a heavy auto-rickshaw veered towards him, hit him from behind and fled the scene.

Police have arrested two people, who were allegedly on the auto-rickshaw at the time of the accident. The auto-rickshaw was later recovered from the neighbouring Giridh district on Wednesday night itself. It was allegedly stolen from Dhanbad.
