Gujarat fake encounter: Remand of 3 IPS officers extended by 15 days

A city court on Tuesday extended the remand of three senior police officials, accused of killing a Muslim man two years ago in a fake encounter, to 15 more days.

Ahmedabad, May 1 : A city court on Tuesday extended the remand of three senior police officials, accused of killing a Muslim man two years ago in a fake encounter, to 15 more days.

"No one is above the law. We have given our reasons for asking 15 more days remand to the court," H. Paheria, the investigating officer told reporters.

The three top officers, who were suspected of killing Sohrabuddin Sheikh in November 2005, were arrested last week.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court said that it would hear the case of Kausar Bi, the wife of fake encounter victim Sohrabuddin Sheikh, on May 3.

The Gujarat Government told the apex court on Monday that Kausar Bi was killed and burnt a few days after Sohrabuddin was killed in November 2005.

The apex court is expected to pass an appropriate order on a habeas corpus petition to produce Kausar Bi.

The State Government said that efforts are on to retrieve Kausar's remains through a DNA test.

Earlier, Gujarat's Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Ranjnish Rai, who was investigating the fake encounter case, was removed from the process.

DIG D G Vanzara is the prime accused along with another Gujarat Police officer Rajkumar Pandyan and Rajasthan Police's Dinesh Kumar. All three were arrested last week.

The police have claimed that Sohrabuddin was a Lashkar-e-Taiba militant and was plotting to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to avenge the death of Muslims in the Gujarat riots in 2002.
