Chandigarh, August 13: A special court on Friday recorded the statement of CBI Jammu’s former SSP S.L. Gupta in the Sex Scandal case that involved former additional Advocate General Anil Sethi as accused.
S.L. Gupta submitted details of his investigation to the court including Sethi’s sexual abuse of a victim after taking her to a hotel in Jammu.
According to the statement, on 18 May 2006, Gupta had visited a local hotel where he had inquired about Sethi’s stay at the hotel and further confiscating the records of the hotel.
Gupta’s statement also used inputs from the court statement detailing Anil Sethi’s involvement by Sabina, another accused in the case. Sabina and Sethi were regularly in touch over the landline phone connection at Sabina’s residence.
The former SSP during the course of his investigation had taken pictures of other people as well and Anil Sethi’s identification had been done from among these pictures.
He had also verified Anil Sethi’s date of birth after taking into possession documents provided as DoB proof for Sethi’s Passport.
The defendant appearing for Sethi cross examined SL Gupta.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled in September.
