Even as the petition was pending, Bajrangi was killed inside the Baghpat jail.On Wednesday, when the petition was taken up before the judge, Agarwal informed the court about the killing of Bajrangi and made a request to direct a CBI probe into the matter.The court declined the request and directed that the petition seeking security for Bajrangi has become infructuous as he is no more.Incidentally, only a division bench can entertain a petition seeking direction for CBI probe and can pass appropriate directives.
