Supreme Court to decide on CBI probe into Gujarat fake encounter case

The Supreme Court will decide today whether a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe is required into the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case.

New Delhi, May 17 : The Supreme Court will decide today whether a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe is required into the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case.

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

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

Shorabuddin's brother had approached the apex court for a CBI probe.

Earlier, 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.

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.
