In his application, Ashish Kumar submitted he approached the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation team to hand over the glove but they refused to take it.
He then saw an advertisement in the paper promising a reward of Rs.1 lakh for a person that provide then a clue in the case, and again approached them but this time also, they refused to entertain him and said they were more interested in finding Aarushi’s missing mobile phone.
Ashish Kumar said he approached the CBI Joint Director Arun Kumar but he also refused to take the glove.
Finding no other option, he had approached the court, he said.
