Asia Bizz: CBI Granted Two Day Custody Of Former Gujarat Minister Amit Shah In Sohrabuddin Sheikh Case
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been granted custody of ex-Minister of the Indian state of Gujarat, Amit Shah, for two days. Amit Shah is undergoing a trial for the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh case.
The CBI had reportedly appealed in the High Court for Shahâ€™s denial of remand, which was granted by Justice Akil Quereshi. KTS Tulsi, the renowned attorney, would represent CBI in the High Court.
The CBI appealed in the High Court because a special CBI court had denied the CBIâ€™s request for further questioning of the former Minister, regarding the ongoing case.
Reports say that a chargesheet of 3,000 pages has been filed against Shah. The Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) believe that Shah killed Sohrabuddin because he claimed that Sohrabuddin was a member of Lashkar â€“e- Toiba.
