Aruna Bheda,wife of Anil Bheda,the slain witness in the fake encounter case of Ramnarayan Gupta alias Lakhan Bhaiya,informed the Bombay High Court on Thursday that she too needs protection as she is a witness in the case in which several police officers are accused.
Arguing for Aruna,senior counsel Vijay Pradhan and lawyer R V Gupta told the court that she should be given protection as she,like her husband who was abducted and killed,is a witness in the fake encounter case. Pradhan also told the court that Aruna should be paid compensation for her husbands death.
Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice P D Kode asked Aruna to amend her petition and adjourned the case for three weeks. The CID also sought time to submit its report on further investigation of the murder of Bheda. The case will now be heard on September 15. ENS
