Ishrat case: Gujarat DGP seeks report from CID on missing top cop PP Pandey

Gujarat director general of police has sought a report from state CID on senior IPS officer P P Pandey, declared absconding in the 2004 Ishrat Jahan encounter killing case.
‘We have asked CID-Crime to send us a detailed report on Pandey and on receiving it we will talk to state Home department which will decide further course of action,’ DGP Amitabh Pathak said.

However, the state Home Department was non-committal on whether state government was going to take any action against Pandey -- who is the additional director general of police -- for his absence from duty for the last four months.
‘We have to wait till state DGP sends his report,’ principal secretary (Home) S K Nanda said. Pandey, a 1982-batch IPS officer, was the Joint Commissioner of Police, Ahmedabad, when Ishrat Jahan, Javed Shaikh alias Pranesh Pillai, Amjad Ali Rana and Zeeshan Johar were gunned down by Crime Branch sleuths on 15 June, 2004.
