Ishrat Jahan Encounter Case Govt denies permission to CBI to file case against ex IB officers

Ishrat Jahan Encounter case happened 11 years back

Now after 11 years the government has turned down request of CBI for granting prosecution sanction to four IB officials, including a retired special director Rajender Kumar, who were allegedly involved in conspiracy behind killing of Ishrat Jahan and three others.

The CBI has been informed the home ministry decision to deny sanction to prosecute Kumar and three others in the killing of Ishrat, a 19-year-old Mumbra college student, and three others in the encounter that took place on outskirts of Ahmedabad in 2004.

In the encounter, Ishrat Jahan, her friend Pranesh Pillai alias Javed Sheikh along with two suspected Pakistanis  Amjad Ali Rana and Zeeshan Johar -- were gunned down by Gujarat crime branch officials.

The crime branch had then claimed that the four of them were Lashkar-E-Taiyaba (LeT) operatives who had reached Gujarat to kill the then chief minister Narendra Modi.

Former IB director Asif Ibrahim had opposed the move to prosecute his officers during his tenure which ended in December last year.

Kumar, an IPS officer of 1979 batch, who retired about two years ago, was posted as joint director of IB in Ahmedabad when the Ishrat encounter took place.

As per Hindustan times reported that as per the sources of the HT CBI
had evidence that Kumar was one of the officers who had interrogated Ishrat when she was allegedly taken into illegal custody by Gujarat police before being killed in the encounter.

Almost all accused in the case got bail from court.
IPS officers DG Vanzara and PP Pandey were granted bail in February.
NK Amin, another accused, was reinstated by the Gujarat home department as deputy superintendent of police (DySP) in the State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) at Gandhinagar early this month.

Let us now sing a song
You save me
I save you
You hide me
I will hide you
You rob the people
I will rob the people
You protect me
i will protect you
