ODISHA HIGH COURT
The Supreme Court on Thursday asked a petitioner, the mother of a 5-year-old girl who was reportedly grabbed, assaulted, and killed, to record the two orders given by the Odisha High Court before it tomorrow, to ensure the Supreme Court for perusing and to continue for the case the following day.
Senior lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani, standing for petitioner Saudamini Sahoo, was requested by a two-judge bench led by Justice AM Khanwilkar and also including Justice Sanjiv Khanna to put the two orders issued by the Odisha High Court in the matter.
"If it's not too much trouble, submit the two orders (of the Odisha High Court) preceding us for examination for the situation," Justice Khanwilkar coordinated the petitioner's counsel, Jethmalani, to put the two decisions of the Odisha High Court before him, and deferred the case until tomorrow.
Saudamini Sahoo, the petitioner, had approached the Supreme Court with a request for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation into her daughter's death.As per Jethmalani, is whether the case was one of organ harvesting or of assault and murder, as the State claims.
He stated, "The circumstances of this case fully negate the second hypothesis."On behalf of the state of Odisha, senior lawyer Kapil Sibal and Additional Solicitor General (AAG) Aishwarya Bhati appeared before the Supreme Court today for the CBI.
The tragedy occurred in Nayagarh, Odisha, in July of last year.Saudamini filed the writ petition under Article 32, alleging a breach of her fundamental right.According to the petition filed by Jethmalani and Ravi Sharma, the petitioner, Saudamini, is an aggrieved party because she is the mother of the victim who was brutally raped and murdered. She has lost hope in a fair investigation and justice and has become a target of harassment and boycott by society as well as law enforcement agencies.
Her daughter was allegedly taken while playing outside her residence on July 13, 2020, according to the petitioner. On July 23, 2020, nine days after the occurrence, several fragments of the child's fractured skeleton were discovered tied in a bag outside the backyard of one Biranchi Sahoo's house.
The petitioner and her family were being treated as criminals by the police personnel.The petitioner and her husband were apprehended by the police on July 26, 2020, and held without food or drink for 12 hours before being released at midnight after being mistreated and mentally tortured. After the involvement of the Odisha High Court on August 11, 2020, the petitioner and her husband were ultimately granted security.
