ishrat jahan fake encounter case
the gujarat govenment has said that the ishrat jahan encounter case is not fake.A day after the report by Ahmedabad metropolitan magistrate S P Tamang, state government spokesperson and cabinet minister Jay Narayan Vyas told reporters that the inquiry report was "bad in law and so the state government will challenge it".

He said this was because the sections of the criminal procedure code used in the inquiry were not tenable with the case.

Vyas wondered how could the magistrate proceed with an inquiry in the case when there was already a high-level police investigation ordered by the Gujarat High Court on the very day -- Aug 13, 2009, -- that had been given time till Nov 30 this year.
