Ahmedabad, Apr 27: After the special court for CBI cases reserved its order on the accused IPS officer N K Amin's bail petition in the 2004 Ishrat Jahan encounter killing case, he filed an application seeking permission to submit "certain very important facts".

"Change of advocates in the middle of hearing and due to lack of sufficient time to go through the bulky charge sheet, certain very important facts and law points...are left unattended," said the application, filed by Amin's lawyer P J Limbachiya. [Supreme Court dismisses bail plea of N K Amin]

On April 13, the special CBI judge K R Upadhyaya reserved its order on bail plea and he was likely to pronounce the ruling on Monday. The court would now hear the submission of Amin's lawyer on May 5.

Amin was the Superintendent of Police in the special branch when Mumbra-based college girl Ishrat Jahan, Javed Shaikh, Amjadali Rana and Zeeshan Johar were killed in an encounter here on June 15, 2004.

CBI's case is that it was a fake encounter.

Seven Gujarat police officials, including IPS officers P P Pandey, D G Vanzara, G L Singhal and Amin, are the accused in the case. Earlier in February, Vanzara and Pandey were released on bail.

Amin, the only police officer who in jail now, has sought bail on the grounds of parity and ill-health.
