Gandhinagar: Gopinath Pillai, the father of Pranesh Pillai alias Javed Sheikh who was killed in an alleged staged shootout, has filed a petition in the Gujarat High Court seeking a review of its order transferring the probe in the Ishrat Jahan case to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing some of the 2002 riot cases.

Pillai was one of the three people killed along with Ishrat in a police shootout in June 2004.

A division bench of Justices Jayant Patel and Abhilasha Kumari had on Aug 12 ordered transfer of probe to the Supreme Court-appointed SIT.

They had also rejected the plea of Gopinath Pillai and Ishrat’s mother Shamima Kausar, for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry in the case.

In the petition, Pillai has sought review of court’s Aug 12 order and demanded a CBI inquiry in the case.

The court found no material on record to conclude malafide in the shootout and turned down the plea for a CBI probe. It however felt the need for further investigations.

Mumbai-based Ishrat was killed in a shootout along with Javed and two others. The Gujarat police at the time claimed that Ishrat and three others were LeT operatives on a mission to kill Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
