The CBI on Tuesday claimed it has found new evidence in the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case which would help to strengthen its investigation into the larger conspiracy behind the incident.


It is now planning to file the supplementary charge sheet a little later in the case due to emergence of new evidence.

Sources said the agency is analysing the “circumstantial evidence” which might help in giving location of some accused persons at the time of the crime.

“We intend to question former special director of the Intelligence Bureau Rajinder Kumar in the light of the new evidence,” said a senior CBI official.

 Sources said they would try to file the supplementary charge sheet in the case giving details of the conspiracy behind the incident in which 19-year old Ishrat and three others Javed Sheikh alias Pranesh Pillai, Amjad Ali Rana and Zeeshan Johar were killed by Gujarat police in June, 2004.
