Ishrat's mother wants SIT to file FIR against 22 Gujarat policemen

Shamima Kausar, along with her lawyer Vrinda Grover, today submitted the application to SIT members Mohan Jha and Satish Verma.

"We have demanded that a fresh FIR be filed against 22 officers named in magistrate S P Tamnag's report as the SIT now has enough evidence to conclude that Ishrat was killed as part of a conspiracy," Grover told PTI.

She said the SIT have collected enough evidence in the form of statements, postmortem reports and FSL reports to at least file an FIR against the police officers involved in Ishrat's killing incident in 2004.

In the application ,Kausar has demanded that the FIR be filed for conspiracy, murder, abduction, illegal confinement, fabrication of evidence against 22 senior police officers of Gujarat.

Kausar also sought includsion of name of police officer Parikshita Gurjar who had investigated the encounter and concluded that it was genuine.

Grover alleged SIT member Jha talked aggressively with her client Kausar when she asked about when she could expect a response to her application. "My client is still shaken by Jha's behaviour," she added.

Grover said the application was received by Verma who had said that the SIT would respond to it by February 28.

Mumbai college student Ishrat Jahan, along with three others, Javed Sheikh alias Pranesh Pillai, Amjad Ali Rana and Zeeshan Johar, was killed on the outskirts of Ahmedabad on June 15, 2004.

Crime branch officers had alleged that Ishrat and her associates were on a mission to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and the encounter was carried out after receiving intelligence inputs from the Centre.
