Ishrat case: SIT to quiz Gujarat cops

The SIT had filed an application in the CBI court of Chief Judicial Magistrate A Y Dave seeking permission to allow head of the SIT Karnail Singh and two other members Mohan Jha and Satish Verma to interrogate Vanzara and Amin, accused in the 2005 Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, who are lodged in separate jails under judicial custody.

The court said it was necessary in the interest of justice that the probe team questioned the accused persons. The time and date of questioning has not been mentioned in the order. Vanzara is lodged in the Sabarmati Central Jail here while Amin was sent to Vadodara Jail by the Gujarat High Court after he had raised concern over his security in wake of his proposal to turn an approver in the fake encounter case. Vanzara, an IPS officer, is also an accused in the 2006 encounter of Tulsiram Prajapati, a close aide of Sohrabuddin.
