Ahmedabad: The state Congress Friday demanded CBI enquiry into the killing of Tulsi Prajapati, a key witness in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

"The conspiracy to eliminate Prajapati was hatched by some political leaders and police officers as he was the main witness to the extortion racket run by them," Congress leader Arjun Modhvadia alleged.

"Prajapati had expressed his apprehension that he would be killed in a police encounter to a court in Udaipur through a letter. This was 15 day before he was killed in a police encounter in Gujarat on December 28, 2006," he said.

Modhvadia said, that the string of events which took place before Prajapati's encounter raises suspicion that killing of Prajapati was a conspiracy to eliminate a key witness.

"We therefore demand CBI investigation into the encounter of Prajapati, which is presently being probed by the state CID," he said, adding this will bring truth to the fore.
