Ahmedabad: One of the accused in Soharabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, Yashpal Chudasama has filed for anticipatory bail in the Gujarat High Court.

High court justice R S Shukla admitted the anticipatory bail application of Chudasama and has kept further hearing of the case on September 13.

In the last week of August, Special CBI judge G K Upadhyay had rejected application of Chudasama saying that since a non-bailable warrant was pending against him in serious offence and his application for anticipatory bail cannot be entertained.

Chudasama, a close aide of Shah and also office bearer of Ahmedabad District Cooperative (ADC) bank, has been absconding after his name appeared in the chargesheet filed by CBI in the case.

According to the chargesheet filed by CBI, Amit Shah directed Chudasama and another accused to "convince, coerce, threaten, influence the witnesses on his behalf to conceal the truth from CBI about the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin."

Chudasama had actively participated in the main conspiracy and the crime committed in furtherance to the conspiracy, the chargesheet has said.
