Additional Director General of Police P P Pande who was evading his arrest for last four months today surrendered before the CBI court here today morning. CBI has declared him absconder in the much talked about Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case.
He appeared in the CBI court at 10.30 am and surrendered himself. None was present from the CBI as his appearance was as unexpected as his frequent disappearances in the last one month.
He had no way but to surrender since Supreme Court on Monday rejected his plea for anticipatory bail. Rejecting the bail plea, SC had taken a very serious stand and observed that SC’s time was wasted by criminals.
A division bench of the SC had observed that the Court had to see the antecedents of the petitioner who was an absconder and who had absconded after rejection of his application for anticipatory bail by Gujarat High Court.
After Pande’s surrender in the court, his advocate moved another application that he could not be arrested without the permission of the government as he was an officer. The court is yet to give judgment on this plea.
