Can High Court direct the CBI for investigation?

Dear Learned Members,

Please let me know

Whether the High Court, in exercise of its jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, can direct the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), to investigate a cognizable offence.

If you know any judgments releated to this issue kindly post here.

yes hc has the power, but it used rearly.

judgement not necessary.

this power provides within the art 226. it is inherent power.

rizwan case of calcutta is one best example. some more cases are there.

go ahead with your prayer.

dear ganesh,

certainly yes, Highcourt has got the extraoridinary jurisdiction to deal with the matters diffrently for the sake of justice to common people only after being satisfied with the compelling circumstances in the matter at their hand but not ordinarily in routine some sort of substantial cause must be present in the matter before HC.
