Supreme Court reserves order on CBI probe into Gujarat fake encounter case

The Supreme Court today reserved its order on a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case, till May 17.

New Delhi, May 15 : The Supreme Court today reserved its order on a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case, till May 17.

The Gujarat Government assured a bench of Justices Tarun Chatterjee and P K Balasubramanian that it would submit the final report within four to six weeks.

Attorney General Milon K Banerjee, appearing for the Centre, again demanded a CBI investigation into the case, involving three police officers - DIG (Border Range) DG Vanzara, Rajkumar Pandian and Alwar Superintendent MN Dinesh Kumar.

The Gujarat Government, who had submitted its report before the apex court on Monday, has rejected the need for a CBI inquiry.

According to the media, more arrests are likely in connection with the case. So far, one confessional statement has been recorded and some telephonic conversation has confirmed the involvement of the accused in the case, the report said.

Sheikh was reportedly gunned down on November 26, 2005 after being branded a Lashkar-e-Toiba militant by the Gujarat Police, allegedly trying to hatch a conspiracy to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

The probe revelation has raised a debate across the country over staged encounters by security forces at the behest of their political bosses.
