Supreme Court rejects CBI probe into Gujarat fake encounter

The Supreme Court today rejected the demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case.

New Delhi, May 17 : The Supreme Court today rejected the demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case.

The decision came as relief for the Gujarat Government, which has rejected the demand for a CBI inquiry into the case.

The plea for a CBI inquiry was filed by Sohrabuddin's brother. Attorney General Milon K Banerjee, appearing for the Centre, had also demanded a CBI investigation into the case.

A Bench of Justices Tarun Chaterjee and P K Balasubramanyam, who heard the case, said that Inspector General of Police Geeta Johri would handle the investigation with full freedom.

A two-member Gujarat Crime Investigation Department (CID) team would also submit the final report on July 3, the Court said.

The apex court also said that it would personally monitor the investigation.

The court will hear the matter on July 16.

The present probe has led to the arrest of three police officers - DIG (Border Range) DG Vanzara, Rajkumar Pandian and Alwar Superintendent MN Dinesh Kumar.

Vanzara and Pandian were part of the team that killed Sohrabuddin Sheikh. They have also been accused of killing his wife, Kausar Bi.

Sohrabuddin 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.
