The apex court bench that was headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat issued notice to the Narendra Modi Government on the petition filed by Rajasthan cadre IPS officer Dinesh M N and N K Amin.
Dinesh had allegedly assisted the Gujarat police in carrying out the fake encounter and Amin was charged with disposing of the body of Sheikhs wife Kauser Bi.
