In a major development in the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested IPS officer G L Singhal, one of the 20 officers named in the case.

Singhal, then Assistant Commissioner of Police Crime Branch, was taken into custody on Thursday while searches have been held at his residence.

Now a Superintendent of Police at State Crime Records Bureau, Singhal has been described as the prime mover in the fake encounter by the Central agency.

Besides Singhal, 20 other policemen were also named in the case, including DIG Vanzara, already in jail for his alleged role in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.In 2004, Ahmedabad crime branch officials shot dead Jahan and three others --Javed Sheikh, Zeeshan Johar and Amjad Ali Rana—in the city outskirts, alleging that they were members of the LeT and were on a mission to assassinate Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.
