Gujarat encounter: CID IGP Geeta Johri arrives in Hyderabad

May 10, 2007 00:18 IST

Gujarat CID IGP Geeta Johri, who is inquiring into the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, arrived in Hyderabad from Ahmedabad on Wednesday.

"No comments. I have come here to clarify certain things. There are no specific names," she told mediapersons who had gathered at the Hyderabad airport on Wednesday night.

It may be recalled that Sohrabuddin, his wife Kausar Bi and another person had boarded a private bus from Hyderabad in November 2005 when they were forcibly off-loaded from the bus by a team of the Gujarat police soon after the vehicle crossed the AP border.

The Gujarat police team had trailed the bus all the way from Hyderabad.

There were reports that the AP police had assisted the Gujarat ATS team that had abducted Sohrabuddin, Kausar Bi and another person.

However, AP Director-General of Police M A Basith has refuted these reports.
