The death of a judge in Jharkhand in what was initially believed to be a hit-and-run has taken a chilling turn with security footage of the incident pointing at murder. The incident was raised in the Supreme Court today by a lawyer who called it a "brazen attack on the judiciary" that needs a CBI investigation.District and Additional Judge Uttam Anand was on his morning run on Wednesday in Dhanbad when he was hit by "an unidentified vehicle" just half a km from his home, according to the police.CCTV footage shows the judge jogging at around 5 am on a deserted road as a tempo takes a turn and appears to go straight for him. The tempo rams the judge and drives off.धनबाद के ज़िला सत्र जज उत्तम आनंद का बुधवार सुबह मोर्निंग वॉक में एक ऑटो के ठक्कर में मौत का मामला गहराता जा रहा हैं @ndtvindia @Anurag_Dwary pic.twitter.com/oV3m3Ca6x0Judge Anand was found lying on the road, bleeding, by a man who took him to hospital. He died in hospital, according to the police. He remained unidentified, however, for hours.His family reported him missing when he did not return at 7 am. The police finally tracked him down to the hospital and established him as the man who had died in a road accident.The police say the CCTV footage makes it clear the tempo hit him deliberately. Investigations have revealed the vehicle was stolen just a few hours before the judge was hit. The clip is circulating on social media and has spurred calls for a bigger investigation.The police are focusing on Judge Anand's cases. He had been handling many cases of mafia killings in Dhanbad town and had recently rejected the bail requests of two gangsters.Raising the incident before a bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud, lawyer Vikas Singh said: "It is a brazen attack on judiciary. This is a matter which should go to the CBI. The local police is usually complicit in such matters. It is shocking. A judge is on a morning walk and is hit by a vehicle. He was dealing with bail applications of gangsters. This is an attack on judicial independence."Justice Chandrachud suggested that Mr Singh mention the case before Chief Justice of India NV Ramana.
