Jaipur: A local court has rejected the bail plea of four police officers in connection with the killing of a criminal Dara Singh in an alleged fake encounter in 2006.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate MK Singhal rejected the bail plea of Naresh, Nisar Khan, Surendra and Satyanarayan yesterday.
Dara Singh was killed in an encounter by the Special Operation Group of Rajasthan Police in Jaipur. Singh`s widow had alleged that it was a fake encounter and on her plea, the Supreme Court had handed over the case to the CBI last year.
The CBI has named 16 policemen including two senior IPS officers AK Jain and A Ponnuchammi in the case.
While Ponnchammi is in judicial custody with five other accused, Jain and other accused are evading arrest.
