Ishrat killing was premeditated murder: Satish Vermatext_fields
New Delhi: IPS officer Satish Verma, who was one of the members of the special investigation team, Thursday said Ishrat’s killing was a “premeditated murder”.
He told The Indian Express that his investigation found that Ishrat along with three others had been picked by IB (Intelligence Bureau) days before the encounter.
“In fact, there was no intelligence input with the IB that a woman would be accompanying the alleged terrorists. There was no input on Ishrat. These people were kept in illegal custody and then shot dead,” he said.
Ishrat was killed along with three men on the outskirts of Ahmedabad on June 15, 2004.
