The Supreme Court has stayed the transfer of investigations into the Ishrat Jahan staged-shootout case from the state police to the apex court-appointed special investigation team (SIT). The Gujarat High Court had ordered the transfer.

The apex court bench of Justice B. Sudarshan Reddy and Justice S.S. Nijjar stayed the transfer after counsel Kamini Jaiswal told the court that the Gujarat High Court by its Aug 12, 2010, order had given the state government 15 days time to issue the notification.

Ishrat Jahan, a college student from Mumbai, was allegedly gunned down by Gujarat police in Ahmedabad June 15, 2004. The state police claimed she was linked with a terror outfit.
