CID cop gets bail in fake encounter case

A local court in Gujarat on Thursday rejected Gujarat CID's application seeking narco-analysis test of six policemen, including IPS officer D G Vanzara, accused in the Soharabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

Metropolition judge K J Upadhyay rejected the CID application. Three of the six arrested are IPS officers D G Vanzara, Rajkumar Pandian and Dinesh M N (all the three are suspended). The other three accused policemen are N H Dabhi, Santram Sharma and Ajay Parmar.

Earlier, on June 7 the court had reserved its order on the petition of state CID seeking narco-analysis test of six policemen.

The defence argued that narco-analysis test of any accused cannot be conducted without his approval.

It also said that remand period of all the six policemen is over and they cannot be subjected to any further police custody.

Prosecution told the court the narco-analysis test of the accused is required to be done to find out the motive behind the fake encounter of Sheikh and alleged murder of his wife Kausar Bi.
