CBI to examine Gujarat IPS officer’s claims in Ishrat case

Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) director Ranjit Sinha said on Thursday that Gujarat IPS officer DG Vanzara’s letter will be examined in the context of Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case.

He,however, also clarified that the agency was yet to receive the letter officially, as per reports.

Vanzara had resigned from service on Tuesday accusing the state government of having failed to protect the interest of policemen jailed for encounter deaths while implementing its ‘conscious policy’.

The development came on a day Congress demanded Modi’s resignation in the wake of a sting operation claiming to ‘expose’ a plan by senior BJP leaders to save his key aide Amit Shah in Tulsi Prajapati fake encounter case.

Controversial IPS officer Vanzara, who has so far rejected charges of fake encounter killings during Modi’s tenure, had accused the government of failing to protect officers who fought against ‘Pakistan inspired terrorism’.

In his 10-page explosive resignation letter addressed to additional chief secretary (Home) dated 1 September, Vanzara, lodged in Sabarmati Central Jail in connection with a string of alleged fake encounter cases, had said the accused officers and men ‘simply implemented the conscious policy’ of the state government.
