Gujarat Government on Friday admitted before the Supreme Court that the husband of a woman, who had gone missing two years ago, was killed in a fake encounter with the police and action has been taken against the erring personnel.

Kauser Bi had gone missing after her husband Sohrabuddin Sheikh was killed in an alleged encounter in 2005.

Sohrabuddin's brother Rubabuddin Sheikh had filed a petition seeking CBI probe into the incident.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan granted four weeks to the Gujarat Government to submit a detailed report about the inquiry into the incident.
