Sohrabbudin fake encounter: Bail pleas of Vanzara, six others rejected

November 14th, 2007 - 10:39 am ICT by admin  

Rejecting the bail pleas, the sessions court said that no bail could be granted to the main suspects in the case, as they are likely to influence the ongoing investigation or tamper with evidence.

Two IPS officers of Gujarat Police– Vanzara and Rajkumar Pandyan– and one of Rajasthan Police– Dinesh Kumar- allegedly executed the encounter in November 2005.

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 cops also allegedly killed Sohrabuddin’s wife, Kausar Bi.

On the Supreme Court’s directive, the Gujarat Government had constituted a CID team under IGP Geetha Johri to investigate the case. (ANI)
