The Supreme Court transferred the case to Pathankot district and sessions court while declining to entertain the demand for a CBI probe in the matter.
In a bid to avoid any delay, the bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra directed a fast-track trial and day-to-day hearing in the matter. Besides, the proceedings have been directed to be held in-camera.
