The court is likely to hand over charge sheet to them on 15 July.

One of the accused senior IPS officers P P Pandey, out of the seven named in the charge sheet, is absconding.

The CBI had filed the charge sheet on July 3 against the seven policemen in the encounter case of Ishrat and three others saying that it was fake and carried out in a joint operation by Gujarat Police and the Intelligence Bureau (IB).

Vanzara and Amin are behind bars in the case. Though Barot and Parmar had got bail in this case as CBI had failed to file charge sheet against them in stipulated 90 days, they are in judicial custody as they are also accused in another encounter case of Sadik Jamal.

Singhal and Chaudhary are out on bail in the Ishrat case for the same reason that CBI did not file charge sheet within 90 days of their arrest.

Meanwhile CBI court today kept the matter of handing over charge sheet to Vanzara's lawyer for hearing tomorrow.

Vanzara's lawyer, VD Gajjar, sought a certified copy of the charge sheet and other documents submitted to the court on the grounds that his client (Vanzara) was unwell and is currently in hospital.
