New Delhi:
Hearing a petition filed by a trustee of Abhinav Bharat Pankaj Phadnis seeking re-investigation of the murder of Mahatma Gandhi, the Supreme Court on Friday appointed a senior lawyer to see if it is feasible.

A Supeme Court bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao asked the senior advocate Amarendra Sharan to ascertain whether there is material evidence to accept the petition seeking re-investigation of the 1948 murder of the father of the nation.

Pankaj Phadnis in his petition while urging the re-opening of the case on several grounds told the court that Mahatma Gandhi's murder was one of the biggest cover-ups in the history.

He also claimed to have proof that a third person was also involved in the murder of Mahatma Gandhi.

He urged the court to conduct a forensic test of the documents written by the police inspector who had apprehended Godse. according to reports.

Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on 30 January 1948 in the compound of Birla House, a large mansion in central New Delhi.

As per the probe done later on, Nathuram Vinayak Godse - a right wing advocate of Hindu nationalism had assassinated Mahatma Gandhi, shooting him in the chest three times at point blank range.
