New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted
two more months to CBI to complete the investigation into the
alleged fake encounter killing of a "gangster" Dara Singh by
the Special Police Operations Group (SPOG) of Rajasthan.
A bench of Justices Markandeya Katju and Gyan Sudha
Mishra granted the time on the CBI`s plea to complete the
investigations.

The apex court had in April last year directed a CBI
probe on an application moved by the deceased`s wife Sushila
Devi accusing the Rajasthan police of abducting her husband,
killing him in a cold blooded manner and passing it off
as an encounter.
According to Rajasthan government, Dara Singh was a
proclaimed offender carrying a reward of Rs 25,000 on his head
and was involved in criminal activities.

Dara Singh was killed by the Rajasthan police on October
23, 2006.
