Gandhinagar: Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Dinesh M.N. Friday moved the Gujarat High Court for bail after a lower court rejected his plea in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake gun battle case last week.
"I have been in judicial custody for the last three years and so my plea for interim bail may be considered. I am an IPS officer and would abide by the conditions that the court may impose on me," the officer has stated in his application.
Dinesh, a Rajasthan cadre official, is one of the 13 police officers and men who were granted bail by a sessions court in October 2007 in the alleged killing Sohrabuddin Sheikh in cold blood in 2005.
In January 2008, the high court, however, cancelled bail of Dinesh and Deputy Superintendent of Police N.K. Amin after the state preferred an appeal challenging the sessions court decision.
IPS officers D.G. Vanzara and Rajkumar Pandian are also in judicial custody in the same case.
Sheikh was allegedly made out to be a part of a terrorist conspiracy to kill Chief Minister Narendra Modi and killed in cold blood in a fake gunfight.
Justice H.B. Antani has posted Dinesh's bail plea for hearing April 23.
