Amid allegations that some police officers tried to influence investigation into the fake encounter case, the CBI has summoned P.C. Pandey, the then Gujarat DGP, for questioning

CBI has summoned former Gujarat DGP P. C. Pandey for questioning in connection with the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter killing case.

The agency has called Mr. Pandey to appear before it on August 11, CBI officials said last night.

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

There have been allegations that some police officials of Gujarat had tried to influence the investigation into the incident.

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

The Supreme Court handed over the fake encounter case to CBI in January this year. The investigating agency has so far arrested former minister of state for Home Amit Shah, IPS officer Abhay Chudasama and owners of Arham farm Rajendra Jirawala in the case.

CBI had interrogated Mr. Shah inside the Sabarmati jail yesterday.
