The Gujarat High Court has ordered the CBI to investigate the fake encounter case, where a college girl Ishrat Jahan and four others were killed in cold blood by the Gujarat Police. This is the fourth case after the Sohrabuddin, Tulsi Prajapati and the Sadik Jamal encounter case that has been handed over to the CBI for investigation by the High Court. The Gujarat High Court by rejecting the state governments appeal to hand over the investigation to the Gujarat Police has created a dent on the already tarnished image of the police.
The Special Investigation Team headed by RR Verma, has been asked by the court to file fresh FIR against the cops who were found to be guilty in their report within two weeks.
