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.
