Ahmedabad: CBI probing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case on Wednesday questioned IPS officer G L Singhal and asked him to appear before it for further interrogation tomorrow.

"We questioned him at length today (for over three hours) but there are still certain things we want him to clarify so we have asked him to appear tomorrow as well," a senior CBI official said.

Singhal, a promotee IPS officer, is currently SP in Gujarat anti-terrorist squad and was SP Gandhinagar at the time of Sohrabuddin's fake encounter in November 2005.

Yesterday, the agency had grilled three officials -- former additional DG G C Raigar, Rajkot police commissioner Geetha Johri and DIG Rajnish Rai.

CBI, having arrested DCP Abhay Chudasama in the fake encounter case, summoned seven retired and serving IPS officials, who dealt with the investigation process of the case in the past when the case was being probed by Gujarat Police.

The Supreme Court had handed over the investigation to CBI in January on the petition by Sohrabuddin's brother Rubabuddin, who had sought its CBI probe in the case.

Meanwhile, CID (crime) head and additional DG V V Rabari and DIG M M Desai and former additional DG OP Mathur are yet to appear before the agency for recording their statement in the case.
