Mumbai, Aug 1: Coming out as a big relief for former Gujarat police officer DG Vanzara when special CBI court today dropped the charges against the senior cop in connection with the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case. Citing the reason of insufficient evidence the special court has also discharged former Rajasthan police officer MN Dinesh along with Vanzara. Earlier the Supreme Court had ordered the transfer of the case from Gujarat to Maharashtra in 2012 after the CBI's request for a fair trial.

Vanzara and Dinesh had spent seven years at the Sabarmati Central Jail in Ahmedabad before being released on bail. Former Gujarat ATS chief Vanzara got retired in June 2014 and MN Dinesh, a senior IPS officer, was with the Rajasthan Police. Speaking to the media Vanzara said, "Justice has been done by the judiciary,". He also expressed his wish to contest the upcoming assembly election in the state of Gujarat.
