The CBI Ghaziabad Court heard final arguments in the protest petition on September 15 in the case of the death of Pravish Chanam, a Manipur resident.

“The hearing went well, and we have put down all our points before the court. We are hopeful for a decision in our favour, the rest is the discretion of the judge,” Dushyant Kumar, the advocate representing the family’s case, told EastMojo.

“We are praying for justice for Pravish Chanam, and we have full faith in the judiciary,” the lawyer added.

Pravish, a 22-year-old from Manipur, was visiting Noida to attend a concert on September 8, 2017. After a series of unfortunate events, the youngster died the next day, and his body was sent for autopsy and cremated by the cops, with consent from Hospital authorities.

Noida police, in its report, had stated that the body was ‘unclaimed’ hence the decision, despite the family having filed a missing complaint of the boy.

The case, transferred to CBI in 2019, was concluded as normal death, and the investigation officer had stated that there was no criminal intent behind it. Chanam’s family, however, suspects that the boy had either been murdered or something criminal had happened with him.

The family then filed a petition requesting the court to order a reinvestigation by a competent investigation officer of the CBI, replacing the present investigating officer.

The judge heard all the arguments from both sides and decided to pass the final order on September 30.
