A special court on Saturday sent suspended deputy superintendent of police N K Amin to CBI custody till April 12 in connection with the Ishrat Jahan encounter case.

The court also directed CBI to ensure proper medical care for Amin,if he needs it.

Special CBI judge H S Khutwad had reserved the order on Friday after CBI produced Amin and sought his custody.

Amin had complained to the court he was abused and tortured by the probe team after his arrest following which the court sent him for medical check-up.

Ruturaj Nanavati,the advocate who represented Amin,said his medical report was normal.

CBI has argued that Amin was specifically involved in the kidnapping of 19-year-old Mumbai girl Ishrat Jahan and Javed alias Pranesh Pillai,along with two others who were killed in a police encounter on June 15,2004,on the outskirts of Ahmedabad.

13 swimmers inhale chlorine gas,rushed to hospital

Thirteen persons were admitted to Civil Hospital here late Saturday evening with complaints of respiratory problems after they inhaled chlorine gas from the chlorination plant for the swimming pool at Veer Savarkar Indoor Stadium.

Three of the affected persons were discharged after primary treatment,said deputy municipal commissioner Dilip Gor.

The chlorination plant at the indoor stadium located near Memco Complex on Naroda Road is run by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation,which has hired a private contractor for its operation and maintenance.

Gor said the victims,all swimmers,were standing near the diving board when they felt uneasiness in breathing. “We called the ambulance and rushed them to Civil Hospital as a precautionary measure,though no one fell unconscious,” he said.
