AHMEDABAD: Family members and supporters of the IPS officer D G Vanzara, who were present in large number in the court premises today, expressed joy at the grant of bail to him by bursting crackers outside.     

Vanzara's brother K G Vanzara and son Prithvi were in the court when the ruling was pronounced.      

The family members greeted and hugged each other outside the courtroom of Special CBI Judge K R Upadhyaya.     

 Vanzara's brother said it was victory of truth.      

"Terror activities hinder development of the country. As our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has rightly said, terrorism is a crime against the humanity. We should support the people who fight against terrorism," he said.      

Vanzara was behind the bars ever since he was arrested in April 2007 in Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.     

 In September last year he resigned from the service, writing a letter which alleged that the then state government headed by Modi failed to protect jailed police officers' interests, who had fought a war against "Pakistan inspired terrorism".
