He came in contact with Shamim and Babukhan when he was driving a truck in Mahijpur. In March 1994 during the EID he went to meet Mahijpur to meet Shamimkhan and Sharrifkhan and met him at the residence of Shamimkhan. Sharifkhan told him that he was going to purchase one or two trucks and offered him to serve with him. Thereafter he purchased one truck. The driver Pappukhan was the younger brother of Shamimkhan and the conductor of the truck was Afzalkhan and the number of the truck was MOU-686. In may and June 1994 two trips carrying brown sugar in the truck were done by him at the instance of Sharifkhan to Bombay. In April 1994 he was told by Sharifkhan to go to Ahmedabad. He came to Ahmedabad, stayed in Ajanta Hotel in the name of Shohrab and as per the instruction of Sharifkhan, one Sattar Chacha handed over a box to him in the hotel. He brought the said box and handed over the same to Sharifkhan. The box contained 9mm pistols and cartridges. Again he came to Ahmedabad at the instance of Sharifkhan and stayed in Ajanta Hotel where one person handed over Rs. 1 lac as per the instruction issued by Sharifkhan who in
turn handed over the same to Sharifkhan at Mahijpur. In June 1994 he came to Ahmedabad along with the cleaner of the truck and he stayed in Ajanta Hotel at Mirzapur. One person came to the hotel and handed over to him one box. The box contained 30 carbine guns and 100 cartridges. He in turn handed over the said box to Ajjukhan who was an accomplice of Sharifkhan and who went to Mahijpur with the box in the truck. He himself went to Mahijpur by train. In July 1994 he again came to Ahmedabad at the instance of Sharifkhan. Sharifkhan had told him that silver belonging to him was lying in Ahmedabad and therefore he was instructed to come to Ahmedabad along with Shamim Pappukhan the driver and Afzal the conductor. He went to Ahmedabad in Truck No.MOU686. Pappu and Afzal had gone to one factory for the purpose of unloading the goods while he himself and Shamim dropped down at Kathwada and then they came to Astodia. He stayed in Hotel Ajanta.

Thereafter he had a talk with Sharifkhan on telephone at Mahijpur. He gave the instruction to change the Hotel. Shamim was asked to stay in Hotel Ajanta while he went to stay in A-1 Guest House near Railway Station and stayed there. Thereafter he contacted Sharifkhan on telephone from A-1 Guest House and on next day at 4.00 p.m., two persons came to the guest house. He had shown the currency notes which were given by Sharifkhan. Thereafter as per their previously hatched plan, he followed the two persons in the auto rickshaw and the persons who came to the guest house followed them on Yamaha. Thereafter they went to the Amardeep Transport where Pappu, the driver of the truck, met him and informed him that the truck was loaded. Thereafter he, Shamim, Afzal and one unknown person followed the Yamaha motor cycle in a truck. The truck was taken near one mosque at Vatva. Thereafter, the persons who came on Yamaha motor cycle requested them to wait. At about 10.00 p.m., three pardanashin ladies
came in the Maruti van with three persons including two persons who came on Yamaha. The name of one of the lady was Zarina. The Maruti Van was parked near the truck and the box lying in the Maruti van was loaded on to the truck. Thus, nine long boxes were loaded in the truck. Thereafter, he sat near the driver’s seat with Pappu and went to Mahijipur. Sharifkhan in the mean while managed one truck bearing No. MP-14-B9177 Tata 1210 LP. The weapons were subsequently shifted in the said truck with help of Afzal and Shamim. It contained 32 AK-56 rifles, cartridges and magazines. The transfer of weapons was made near the pond situated at some distance from Mahijpur. Sharifkhan thereafter told him to keep the weapons at his residence for some days. During the night hours the weapons were kept in the back portion of his house. On the next day he purchased four containers and the weapons were put in the containers and few of them were buried. Sharifkhan, in the month of October-November, came in Maruti Van bearing No. DL-2-8224 and they met at the house of Shamim and at that time Afzal informed that some persons have come from Gujarat and they were interrogating Pappukhan at Malva Transport. In December, January and as well as in February he stayed in Ahmedabad. Salim and Rafiq RD came in Maruti Car bearing No. CTK-4605. He came along with them to Zarania and thereafter they went to the well situated in his field. He had brought 4 AK-56 Rifles, 8 to 10 magazines and one box of cartridges. Then he went with them to Indore and from there he had returned to Ujjain. Subsequently he came to Ahmedabad at the instance of Sharifkhan and stayed in the house of his sister Ramzani Gandhi. Thereafter again in the month of June 1995 he went to M.P. where police came to have a search at his place.

The antecedents of the witnesses relied on by CBI:
• RAMAN KHODIDAS PATEL AND DASHRATH KHODIDAS PATEL AND THEIR ASSOCIATES
Popular Construction Pvt. Ltd., a construction firm owned by real brothers Raman Khodidas Patel and Dashrath Khodidas Patel is into the field of land trading and building construction since many years. Under the head of construction, both the persons are involved in land mafia. Their modus operandi is to prepare forged and fraud documents of land and buildings, to use forged documents as real, to cheat, to mislead governmental and non governmental authorities to fulfill their personal motive of earning money by any means. They are taking support of notorious criminals to achieve their target of grabbing land by any means. They are having this nexus with serious criminals who are known to them since long. Their area of such illegal business spreads to Ahmedabad city, Ahmedabad district and Gandhinagar district. It has come to notice that one Gopal Chaturbhai Amin resident of Gandhinagar is also attached with Raman Patel and Dashrath Patel in this illegal business of land grabbing. All these criminals in connivance with each other would hatch the conspiracy to grab any pre decided land/property/building for their personal monetary benefit. After that they will prepare any kind of forged documents of the said land/ property/building and put their claim of propriety on it by any illegal means. They would not hesitate to put any government official under any kind of risk. Also they would use the muscle power of notorious criminals to fulfill their objective. By any means they would conspire to claim the
ownership of the land/property/building for their personal and monetary benefits. Many cases have been registered against them in the said matter. Government officials have become the complainant in few of such cases. It is found from their criminal record that they do not hesitate to involve anti national criminal like Sharif Khan, who is currently operating from Pakistan, in such cases. In one of the case registered, it is found that this duo of Raman Patel and Dashrath Patel had invited a notorious criminal namely Sohrabuddin to intervene in a land/property dispute. Both the brothers had threatened the complainant through Sohrabuddin and in turn the complainant was forced to pay some money to Sohrabuddin. Moreover in the same case money was even transferred to Sharif Khan, based in Pakistan. A list of cases registered is attached herewith.
