Gujarat HC rejects Rubabuddin`s plea

Last Updated: Friday, September 3, 2010 - 23:54

Ahmedabad: Upholding the lower court order,
Gujarat High Court today rejected the plea of Sohrabuddin
Sheikh`s brother Rubabuddin to join court proceedings as a
party in the bail application of former Gujarat minister Amit
Shah.

Justice Akil Kureshi rejected Rubabuddin`s petition but
allowed his advocate to file a written submission in the CBI
court through public prosecutor during the hearing of the
case.

Rubabuddin`s counsel Mukul Sinha submitted that Shah,
former Minister of State for Home, was an influential person
and if granted bail could prove dangerous for investigation in the matter.
Sinha had further contended that Rubabuddin was the
original complainant upon whose petition the Supreme Court
directed the state CID to probe Sohrabuddin`s killing and
later transferred the case to CBI, and hence he should be heard while deciding on Shah`s bail.
In the last week of August, CBI Judge G K Upadhyay
rejected Rubabuddin`s plea saying that he had no locus standi
in opposing the bail of Shah, who is facing charges of murder,
abduction, extortion and criminal conspiracy in the fake
encounter of Sohrabuddin and killing of his wife Kaursarbi.
