Gujarat Prajapati encounter case PI Ashish Pandya reinstated in service

Gujarat Prajapati encounter case Police inspector Ashish Pandya reinstated in service

The Gujarat state government on Thursday has reinstated police inspector Ashish Pandya, in Rapar police station that comes under Kutch-Gandhidham district as circle inspector
Police inspector Ashish Pandya had allegedly pulled the trigger on Tulsiram Prajapati.

Police inspector Ashish Pandya was lodged in Palanpur sub-jail after he was arrested by the Gujarat CID (Crime) in 2010 that was probing the case before the CBI.
Pandya was serving his term in Palanpur jail with his former boss, then Superintendent of Police Banaskatha Vipul Aggarwal, who was released on bail in October 2014 and is now in the Health and Family Welfare department of the state government.

When the State CID (Crime) was investigating the case in 2010, Pandya who was posted in the Anti-Corruption Bureau in Rajkot had fled from Gujarat and surrendered to police after remaining untraceable for more than 15 days.

Aggarwal had allegedly chosen Pandya, who was a Sub-Inspector then, to lead the team of constables from SOG and Rajasthan special task force to eliminate Tulsiram at Chapri village of Ambaji town in Banaskantha district.

The CBI in their chargesheet had stated that Tulsiram was encountered by Gujarat Police as he was ‘material evidence’ to the murders of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and wife Kausar Bi.

As per the CBI, who later took over the Tulsiram Prajapati encounter case to probe a larger conspiracy in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, Pandya had exposed Aggarwal’s role in the encounter and his nexus with then ATS SP Rajkumar Pandian and then DIG Border Range DG Vanzara (now retired) for planning and executing the encounter.
