The four former Rajasthan policemen arrested in Tulsi Prajapati fake encounter case in Gujarat were taken to the shootout site on Thursday and will be produced in a court on Friday, police officials said.
Former Assistant Sub-Inspector Narayansingh Fateh Singh Chauhan and Constables Dalapat Singh Khumansingh Rathod, Kartarsingh Yadram Jat and Yuddhaveersingh Nathusingh Rajput were posted at Udaipur at the time of the encounter of Prajapti, an aide of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, an alleged gangster.
They were taken to Chhpapari in Banaskantha district, where the encounter took place nearly four years ago.
"All the four will be produced in Danta Civil Court (in Banaskantha) on Friday on expiry of their ten-day police custody," said Deputy Superintendent of Police (CID Crime) RK Patel.
"We had taken the policemen to the (encounter) spot and have done a panchanama as directed by the court. We will request the court to extend their remand as some important information about the case is yet to be gathered," he said.
According to the chargesheet, Prajapati, a key witness in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, was gunned down on December 28, 2006 by Chauhan and Rajput with their service revolvers.
Then Superintendent of Police Udaipur MN Dinesh is also an accused in the case. Dinesh, also an accused in the Sohrabuddin case, is lodged in Sabarmati Central Jail.
