In the Ishrat Jahan encounter case, former Gujarat IPS officer PP Pandey has received great relief from the CBI court. Ahmedabad-based CBI court has discharged P. Pandey from Ishrat Jahan Encounter case. A CBI court in Ahmedabad said on Wednesday that in the case of Ishrat Jahan encounter, former police chief of Gujarat PP Pandey will not be charged.
19-year-old Ishrat Jahan and three others were killed in fake encounters in 2004. The Gujarat police had said at that time that the dead were terrorists of the Lashkar and they wanted to kill the Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
PP Pandey is now out on bail. He had filed a discharge petition.
