Ishrat Jahan case: CBI starts inquiry against ex-Guj ministers

The CBI on Tuesday registered a preliminary inquiry against former Gujarat ministers in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case.

The CBI has recovered a CD showing the ministers discussing how to derail the case, according to Times Now. The conversations on the CD date back to November 2011 and take place a day before a SIT appointed by the Gujarat high court was to submit its report in the case. The CD has 70 minutes of audio and the CBI could summon all concerned for questioning. The case involves encounter killings of Ishrat Jahan Raza, a 19-year old girl from Mumbai, and three men, Pranesh Pillai (alias Javed Gulam Sheikh), Amjad Ali Rana and Zeeshan Johar who had alleged links to terrorists, by officers of the Ahmedabad Police Crime Branch on 15 June, 2004.
