Ghatkopar plane crash: Bombay High Court wants authorities to consider CBI probe

Observing that the Ghatkopar plane crash was a serious issue, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday issued a notice to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Central Bureau of Investigation and state government, asking them to reply to a PIL seeking a CBI probe into the matter.
A division bench of Justice Ranjit More and Justice Anuja Prabhudesaai issued the direction while hearing a plea filed by Advocate Yashwant Shenoy. He argued that "I consider it to be a miracle and a warning from the almighty to the people of Mumbai to get their act together before a catastrophe strikes. This petition seeks a criminal investigation to be conducted by a central agency because though the incident took place in Mumbai, the perpetrators are sitting in Delhi and other parts of the country."
