Gujarat crime branch had fired 70 rounds at Ishrat Jahan, others

New Delhi, July 4: Gujarat Crime Branch officials had fired 70 rounds using their automatic and semi-automatic weapons at Ishrat Jahan and three others during the alleged fake encounter nine years ago.
 In an attempt to give the encounter credibility, Crime Branch Commando Mohan Kalasawa allegedly fired from AK-56 automatic assault rifle, which was said to be provided by subsidiary intelligence bureau--an unit of Intelligence Bureau, at the official Gypsy of police, CBI sources said, adding these details have been included in their charge sheet.
 They said they have given in charge sheet how this AK-56 was procured by the Crime Branch and later planted on Amjad Ali Rana who was killed along with Ishrat and two others on June 15, 2004.
 Two officers of the team which executed the encounter--IK Chauhan and Commando Mohan Nanji--had refused to fire upon four victims--Ishrat, Javed Sheikh, Amjad Ali Rana and Jishan Johar--following which Mohan Kalasawa and Tarun Barot snatched their weapons and shot the victims dead, CBI sources said.
