Captain Kailash Shoree, 70, father of Punjab FDA Officer Neha Shoree, who was shot dead at her office in Kharar in 2019, has approached the Punjab and Haryana high court alleging that the special investigation team (SIT) of Punjab Police closed the case in a “tainted manner “ without looking into the facts.

Balwinder Singh, 49, a Morinda resident, opened fire at Neha Shoree, the Zonal Licensing Authority of the Food and Drug Administration, FDA Punjab, before shooting himself on March 29, 2019.

According to police, Singh, a chemist, was nursing a grudge against Neha Shoree for the suspension of his drug license.

The fresh application had been filed in a November 13, 2019, plea in which Neha’s parents had demanded that police be asked to submit a final report before the court.

In January 2020, police had filed a closure report, and subsequently, the CBI and NIA were made party on the request of petitioners. The case could not be taken up due to pandemic since April 6, 2020.

Acting on the fresh application on Friday, the HC bench of justice Jaishree Thakur has advanced the hearing from April 26 to January 18, 2022.

The court also asked the CBI to file a reply by then. The NIA has filed its reply and expressed its inability to take over the case due to workload.

While the parents allege Neha was murdered due to her honest work as she had become an irritant to drug cartels, the police probe denied the role of drug smugglers in the murder.
