CBI summons IPS officer Geeta Johri in Sohrabuddin case

Gandhinagar , Thu, 29 Jul 2010 ANI

Gandhinagar, July 29 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday summoned Geetha Johri, the first woman IPS officer of Gujarat, in connection with the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.


Johri, who was the part of Supreme Court appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the case, has been asked to appear before the CBI on August 10.


The CBI had already questioned Johri twice before.


According to television reports, the line of questioning to Johri will be based on the allegations made by Vasant Solanki, the investigating officer of the case.


Earlier, the CBI has also summoned former Gujarat Director General of Police (DGP) P C Pandey and asked him to appear before it on August 11.


Pandey was DGP of Gujarat when the state CID was investigating the fake encounter case.


This is for the first time Pandey has been called for questioning by the CBI. It had earlier called other IPS officers, including G C Raigar and O P Mathur.


Meanwhile, the CBI team is likely to seek permission from its headquarters to question Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in connection with the case.


The investigating agency may want Modi to answer some questions in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.


The CBI wants to know if Modi was aware of the attempts being made by top police officials to scuttle the probe.


If Modi is summoned for questioning, it will be for the second time this year. He was earlier questioned by a Special Investigation Team in 2002 Gujarat riots case.


Sohrabuddin and his wife Kausar Bi were killed in an alleged fake encounter in 2005. (ANI)
