The Gujarat Government has reinstated suspended IPS officer Vipul Agarwal, accused in the Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case.
“His suspension has been revoked and he has been reinstated in service. He is posted at the Director General of Police office at the Headquarters [in Gandhinagar]. The details of his posting have not yet been finalised,” GR Aloria, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) told The Hindu.
Mr. Agarwal, a 2001-batch IPS officer, was suspended in May 2010 after he was arrested by the Gujarat Criminal Investigation Department.
Last month, the Bombay High Court granted him bail.
Mr. Agarwal, who was the Superintendent of Police of Banaskantha district when the encounter took place in 2006, was named in the 1,000-page chargesheet filed by Gujarat CID in a court in Banaskantha.
