The Gujarat High Court has acquitted 12 people accused of murdering senior BJP leader and former Home Minister, Haren Pandya. It has also accused the CBI of mishandling the investigation. "It is clear that the CBI had botched up. Their investigations left a lot to be desired," the court said. "The Investigation Officer should be held responsible for lapses which has resulted in enormous wastage of public resource and money," the court said. The CBI will file a Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court.
