AHMEDABAD: Retired Gujarat IPS officer D.G. Vanzara, who is a key accused in the Ishrat Jahan and Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter cases, arrived in Ahmedabad on Friday to much fanfare and pomp after the court permitted him to enter the state after nine years.

Vanzara was greeted by the thronging crowd in a grand reception with several garlands around his neck and chants of “Bharat Mata ki Jai”.

“I was in Sabarmati jail and six years in Maharashtra and at that time there were conditions on me. Now after nine years, I am coming to Gujarat from Maharashtra and I am happy that so many people have come to receive me. This programme is just a glimpse of my reception,” Vanzara told the media here.
