Ahmedabad: CBI investigation has revealed that Sohrabuddin Sheikh's wife Kausarbi was killed in a farmhouse on outskirts of Gandhinagar, her body was burnt and ashes were thrown in Narmada river near Bharuch.

According to the chargesheet filed by CBI in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case of 2005, Kausarbi was murdered in Arham farm and her ashes were thrown in Narmada as per direction of IPS officer D G Vanzara, one of the key accused in the case.

The chargesheet further said Vanzara was instructed to eliminate Kausarbi by Gujarat junior home minister Amit Shah, who is one of the accused in the fake encounter and is untraceable.

On the day when Sohrabuddin was picked up, Gujarat police were not keen on bringing Kausarbi along, it said.

When the luxury bus of Sangeeta travels was intercepted on November 21, 2005 in Sangli in Maharashtra and Sohrabuddin was taken into custody, Gujarat Police had asked Kausarbi who was travelling with him, to get back into the bus, the chargesheet said.

But Kausarbi refused to leave her husband and so Gujarat Police officials decided to take her along, it said.

Sohrabuddin and Kausarbi were kept in Disha farm till night of November 25, 2005, and then they were taken to Arham farm, from where Sohrabuddin was taken to Ahmedabad and killed in a fake encounter, it said.

The chargesheet said after Kausarbi was murdered in Arham farm, co-accused police inspector N V Chauhan and constable Nathubha Jadeja put bundles of hay on her body, while another accused D R Chaubey brought a plastic can containing diesel and poured it on the body.

Thereafter, Vanzara set the body on fire and instructed Chauhan to throw the ashes into Narmada river near Bharuch.
