Jaipur: Rajasthan government has suspended
Additional SP Arshad Ali, charge sheeted by CBI for his
alleged involvement in the Dara Singh fake encounter case.

His suspension order was issued yesterday, according
to sources.
Another senior IPS officer Ajay Kumar Jain who was
suspended by the government is absconding.

CBI had summoned both the officers last month for
interrogation, however, they failed to appear before it and
their whereabouts are unknown.

A local court has also issued warrant against them.

Five policemen --including an IPS officer A
Ponnuchamy-- and a retired sub-inspector have been arrested so
far in connection with the encounter case which is being
investigated by the CBI.
The agency filed a charge sheet in a local court
naming former BJP minister and sitting MLA Rajendra Rathore
but stopped short of making him an accused.

Dara Singh was killed by the Special Operations Group
(SOG) in an alleged fake encounter on October 23, 2006 in
Rangendra Prasad Nagar area on the outskirts of Jaipur.

His family members had accused a senior state BJP
leader claiming that Singh was targeted because of personal
enmity.
