Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High court today
sought all documents related to Judicial Magistrate S P
Tamang`s report which had stated that the encounter of Mumbai
girl Ishrat Jahan and three others in June 2004 was "fake".

A Division Bench of Justices Jayant Patel and
Abhilasha Kumari gave the direction while hearing a bunch of
petitions related to the encounter. The pleas included those
filed by the parents of the deceased demanding a CBI inquiry
into the police action six years ago.

The petitions also include one by the State Government
and an officer, G L Singhal, named in Tamang`s report, seeking
quashing of the Magistrate`s report.

The Tamang report had said Ishrat`s encounter was
"fake" and executed "mercilessly" by shooting the victims from
"close range" with motives to get promotion, to impress the
Chief Minister and get accolades.

Ishrat (19), a resident of Mumbra near Mumbai, was
gunned down by Gujarat Police along with Javed Ghulam Sheikh
alias Pranesh Kumar Pillai, Amjad Ali alias Rajkumar Akbar Ali
Rana and Jisan Johar Abdul Gani near here on June 15, 2004.

The police had then claimed the four were operatives
of Pakistan-based LeT on a mission to kill Chief Minister
Narendra Modi and carry out attacks on various parts of India,
including Gujarat.

They had further said the encounter was carried out
based on inputs from the Central intelligence agencies.
