Eager to be crown witness: Ishrat encounter case

With more and more evidence surfacing, a certain suspended police officer, who has already spent five years in jail and is undergoing treatment after his release on bail, has approached the CBI to become crown witness. It may be recalled that in the past also he had shown such keenness in Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case. He has filed an application expressing his desire to become crown witness. However, during hearing he decided to withdraw the application. The CBI has shown no interest in the matter having dug up a mountain of evidence.  (A. G. Khan)
