KARNATAKA: In the case of SUJIT S/O MADIWALAPPA MULGUND v. THE SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE, The Karnataka High Court has issued general directions for speedy trials of investigations in criminal matters.
A single-judge bench headed by Justice S Sunil Dutt Yadav in its order said, “There is a requirement to pass directions for speedy conclusion of the investigation, that may be applicable to the matters in general.”
Further, The Bench said Investigation Officers are to be abreast with the latest developments in the use of technology in the commission of crimes. It observed, “They are not conversant with the manner of commission of crimes, especially with respect to crimes relating to money laundering and in the specific use of cryptocurrency and digital money in the commission of crimes. The international ramification of offenses which are cross border offenses usually found in money laundering cases has a serious impact on investigation.”
