"The case against the officers are that of killing terrorists, and hence their re-appointment is not arbitrary and shocking," This was the submission made by the Gujarat government in the high court which is hearing a petition challenging the appointment of two officers who accused in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case.

The appointment of Superintendent of Police N K Amin and Deputy Superintendent of Police Tarun Barot was challenged in the Gujarat high court. In October 2016, the home ministry of Gujarat appointed Barot as DySP, Headquarters, Western Railway, Vadodara, on a one-year contract. He was appointed almost two years after his retirement. Amin's service, on the other hand, was extended by a year on a contractual basis as SP Mahisagar district.

The government argued that the two officers had an outstanding record. Amin was discharged in the Sohrabbuddin Sheikh encounter case. Officers who reviewed the appointment termed them as outstanding officers. The government also submitted that the state had never granted sanction to prosecute the two officers.
