Palanpur: The four former Rajasthan policemen arrested in Tulsi Prajapati fake encounter case of Gujarat were taken to the shootout site today and will be produced in a court tomorrow, police officials said here.

Former Assistant Sub-Inspector Narayansingh Fateh Singh Chauhan and Constables Dalapat Singh Khumansingh Rathod, Kartarsingh Yadram Jat and Yuddhaveersingh Nathusingh Rajput were posted at Udaipur at the time of the encounter.

They were taken to Chhpapari in Banaskantha district, where the encounter took place nearly four years ago.

"All the four will be produced in Danta Civil Court (in Banaskantha) on Friday on expiry of their ten-day police custody," said DSP (CID Crime) R K Patel.

"We had taken the policemen to the (encounter) spot and have done a panchanama as directed by the court. We will request the court to extend their remand as some important information about the case is yet to be gathered," he said.

According to the chargesheet, Prajapati, a key witness in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, was gunned down on December 28, 2006 by Chauhan and Rajput by their service revolvers.

Then Superintendent of Police Udaipur Dinesh M N is also an accused in the case. Dinesh, also an accused in the Sohrabuddin case, is lodged in Sabarmati Central Jail.
