Ahmedabad: In a significant development, the Gujarat High Court on Friday directed the state government to submit a list of police officers of the rank of Additional Director Generals (ADG) to explore the possibility of setting up a three-member committee for a fresh investigation into the killing of Ishrat Jahan.


Shamina Kausar, mother of the 19-year old girl who was killed along with three others in an encounter by police had alleged that Ishrat was killed in a fake encounter by the Detention of Crime Branch (DCB) of Ahmedabad police in June, 2004.

Justice Kalpesh Jhaveri on Friday asked the State government to furnish a list of senior most additional DGP-level officials to the court and subsequently the court will pick up the three officials to form a team to investigate the case. The court, after hearing the petition filed by Shamina, has asked the State to provide the list of police officials by August 12.

Shamina, in her petition, has sought CBI investigation into the case. She had also demanded compensation for killing of her daughter in an alleged fake encounter case. This is a second case after Sohrabuddin encounter case, in which the court has ordered investigation into the veracity of encounter carried out by the Gujarat police, advocate Mukul Sinha representing Shamina Jahan said.


Ishrat, travelling with Javed and two others in an Indica car with a Maharashtra registration number, was gunned down at Kotarpur near Indira Bridge on the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar highway.


D G Vanzara, Rajkumar Pandian and Narendra Amin were among the officers involved in the encounter.


The three are, at present, lodged in the Sabarmati Central Jail for their involvement in the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case and the subsequent murder of his wife, Kausarbi.

That's a very good development. But a probe committee of Gujarat officers will not come out with the truth unfortunately.
