Apex court allows transfer of murder case involving politiciansAugust 1st, 2008 - 1:17 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) The Supreme Court Friday allowed a murder case trial involving two prominent politicians - MP Afzal Ansari and state legislator Mukhtar Ansari- to be transferred out of the district where it was being held. The apex court suspended an Allahabad High Court ruling, which had dismissed a government plea to transfer the trial outside Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh.
A bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan stayed the high court ruling on a plea by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is prosecuting the two politicians for their alleged role in a 2002 murder.
