Ahmedabad: A constable with Banaskantha district police was on Tuesday arrested in connection with the Tulsi Prajapati encounter case, a day after an IPS officer was held in this regard.

Constable Vinod Choudhary was part of the team that carried out the 'fake' encounter of Prajapati, who was believed to be a key witness in Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.

"We have arrested Vinod and further investigation is on. More officials, whose names have figured in the investigation, may be arrested as the probe progresses," Additional DGP and head of CID V V Rabari said.

Last night, CID arrested Dahod SP Vipul Agarwal, who was SP of Banaskantha when the encounter of Prajapati was carried out in December 2006.

Agarwal is the first IPS officer to be arrested in connection with the Prajapati encounter case.

Meanwhile, CID has submitted a preliminary investigation report to the state police head and the state Home department regarding Prajapati's encounter.

Over 10 police officials are under scanner and likely to be arrested for the encounter that had taken place near Ambaji in Banaskantha, CID sources said.
