However, "we have come to know that the state's law and judiciary department has appointed advocate Pradeep Gharat as the special public prosecutor in the same case on September 30, 2021," states the letter.

The letter further states that the investigation in the case is in the last stage. Also, the filing of the charge sheet was on the last stage at that time. However, at this stage, it's yet unclear why the public prosecutor was changed!
