Ahmedabad: CBI on Thursday filed a progress report on its probe into the fake encounter case of Ishrat Jahan and three others in 2004.

"As directed by the court during last hearing, investigating officer of CBI today (Thursday) filed the progress report in a sealed cover before Registrar (Judicial) Gujarat High Court," advocate Yogesh Rawani, representing the central agency, said.

On May 10, a division bench of Justices Jayant Patel and Abhilasha Kumari had granted more time to the agency and asked it to submit a progress report by Thursday.

Since the last hearing, CBI has made significant progress in its investigations. The CBI arrested suspended IPS officer and prime accused in Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, D G Vanzara, who is now lodged in Sabarmati Central Jail.

Besides, CBI summoned and grilled Special Director of Intelligence Bureau Rajendra Kumar in this case for the inputs generated about four "terrorists" entering the state to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Kumar was posted as Joint Director IB in Gujarat in 2004.
