Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) [India], Jan 10 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday filed an affidavit along with a fresh status report in the Himachal Pradesh High Court on the sensational gang rape and murder of a minor girl in Shimla earlier this year.

The CBI in its reports also expressed displeasure on non cooperation of the state government in the case.

The court has fixed March 28 for further hearing in the matter.

On December 15 last year, the CBI announced a reward of Rs. 10 lakh for providing credible information resulting in the arrest of accused.
