Gandhinagar: Former Gujarat IPS officer DG Vanzara, who spent eight years in jail, returned home on Friday to a hero's welcome, saying politicians had framed him in "encounter" cases.
Driving home in a black Mercedes limousine, Vanzara, who got bail last year in the killing of Ishrat Jahan, told a huge gathering that all the "encounter cases" in which he and other police officers were jailed were genuine and done on information provided by the Intelligence Bureau.
He got a rousing welcome from his family and supporters at the Ahmedabad airport and later at the Town Hall in Gandhinagar, where he was driven in a Mercedes car gifted by his son.
Several policemen on duty at the airport and Town Hall saluted him.
Holding a silver sword presented by his family, Vanzara danced to the beat of drums.
