New Delhi: The Supreme Court on October 6 yesterday issued notice to the Gujarat government on a petition filed by Shamima Kaushar - mother of Ishrat Jahan challenging the Gujarat High Court order that stayed the report of Metropolitan Magistrate S.P. Tamang describing the incident as fake encounter.


A Bench consisting of Justices B.N. Agrawal and Aftab Alam, after hearing counsel Kamini Jaiswal, also issued notice to the Centre and the CBI on the petition filed by Shamima Kaushar seeking a direction to vacate the interim stay order passed by the High Court on September 9.


The apex court sought the response of various parties within four weeks.


Shamima Kausar moved the apex court, challenging the Gujarat High Court's Sep 9 order suspending Ahmedabad Metropolitan Magistrate M.P. Tamang's report on the Ishrat Jehan killing. Tamang in his report questioned the Gujarat police claim that Ishrat and others were planning to kill Chief Minister Narendra Modi. The report also said the police merely staged a shootout and killed them in cold blood.


Assailing the High Court order, the petitioner said she had sought a CBI probe. The High Court had committed a grave error in law as well as on facts in arriving at a finding that the enquiry by Mr. Tamang into the killing of Ishrat and others amounted to conducting parallel proceedings and overstepping his limits, the petition said.


The special leave petition said the High Court order was based on an erroneous interpretation of Section 176 (1-A) of the Cr.PC as every unnatural death “entails an inquest under Section 174 Cr.PC to ascertain the apparent cause of death.”


An investigation by the police and an enquiry by a judicial magistrate under Section 176 (1A) were distinct but simultaneous proceedings, and indeed the “Cr.PC mandates the carrying out of these parallel proceedings.”


It pointed out that the magistrate’s report was exhaustive, based on the evidence made available to him by the police.


The special leave petition said, “It is a gross misrepresentation of the law and the constitutional mandate for the Gujarat police to argue that the persons who were killed in the so-called encounter on June 15, 2004, including the petitioner’s daughter, are terrorists belonging to a banned organisation called Lashkar-e-Taiba and, therefore, by implication are not protected by the law of the land in the same manner as ordinary citizens.”


Kausar also sought the apex court's directive to summon all official records on the killings, apprehending that these might be tampered with in the state government's custody.


A Gujarat police team had shot dead the 19-year-old girl from Thane and her associates Javed Ghulam Sheikh alias Pranesh Kumar Pillai, Amjad Ali alias Rajkumar Akbar Ali Rana and Jisan Johar Abdul Gani on June 15, 2004, on the outskirts of Ahmedabad.


The state police later claimed that the four planned to assassinate Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
