Muslims protest against alleged Gujarat fake encounter

Muslims across the country staged a protest on Thursday against alleged staged killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh in November 2005.

New Delhi/Mumbai, May 3 : Muslims across the country staged a protest on Thursday against alleged staged killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh in November 2005.

A small group of Muslim activists holding placards, banners and carrying a coffin shouted slogans against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

"We request the President A P J Abdul Kalamto to declare President rule in Gujarat and dismiss the Narendra Modi's government and a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) enquiry be conducted," said Shakeel Saifi, President, All India Muslim Youth Committee (AIMYC), in New Delhi.

The police have claimed that Shiek 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.

Last month, the State Government, in reply to a petition by Sheikh's brother in the Supreme Court, admitted the gun battle was fake and ordered fresh investigations.

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.

In Mumbai, family of Ishrat Jahan Sheikh, a 19-year-old biosciences student, shot dead in a similar encounter in Ahmedabad have demanded re-opening of her case.

Ishrat Jahan along with three men was shot dead in June 2004 in an encounter allegedly for plotting to assassinate Modi.

Incidentally, the police officer involved in the shootout, D. G. Vanzara , is among the three officers arrested for the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh.

Mussarat Jahan, sister of Ishrat Jahan said the case should be re-opened in Maharashtra and not Gujarat, as the family did not trust the Gujaratovernment.

"Gujarat police is always involved in killing innocent people. But after this case (Sohrabuddin Sheikh) want our case to be reopened again and the false charges levied on my sister should be removed," said, Mussarat Jahan.

Jahan added that they would file a petition in the Bombay High Court.
