After his name surfaced in the encounter,Pandey had gone underground from April this year. He was declared an absconder by the court.

In the meantime,Pandey approached courts first for quashing of FIR against him and then for anticipatory bail to evade arrest in the case,but both of his appeals were rejected by all the courts,including the Supreme Court.

The CBI court here had issued a non-bailable warrant against Pandey on August 7.

Seven Gujarat policemen,including Pandey,had been named as accused and charged with murder and criminal conspiracy,among others,by CBI.

In its charge sheet filed earlier,CBI had said that the encounter was “fake” and a joint operation between Gujarat police and Intelligence Bureau.
