HYDERABAD: A division bench of the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday reserved its orders in petitions filed seeking direction to the government to forthwith initiate re-investigation into the rape and murder case of Ayesha Meera.The bench was dealing with petitions filed by Syed Iqbal Basha and Shamshad Begum, parents of Ayesha, and Prof Rama S Melkote and two others.

The petitioners sought for a court monitored SIT probe or to entrust the case to CBI in view of the observations made by the High Court while acquitting P Satyam Babu, prime accused in the case, in March this year.

On Tuesday, the government counsel for home submitted that the state government had already constituted SIT and urged the court to pass orders for re-investigation into the case. The counsel said that there was no need for court monitoring when an independent agency like SIT would probe the case.
The bench opined that there was a need to know the real culprits in the case, and reserved its orders.
