NEW DELHI, March 3 - The Supreme Court would hear on March 11 a plea seeking quashing of criminal prosecution, suspension and other actions taken against Gujarat cops in the 2004 alleged fake encounter killing of Ishrat Jahan in view of recent testimony of jailed LeT operative David Headley.
The matter, which was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench on March 1, will be heard on March 11.
The plea, filed by advocate ML Sharma, refers to the statement recorded by Headley, the Pakistani-American terrorist, in a Mumbai court that Jahan was a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative.
Gujarat Police personnel, including the then DIG DG Vanzara, are facing trial in a Mumbai court for their alleged role in the encounter. � PTI
