Shah could influence probe if granted bail: Rubabuddin

Former Gujarat minister Amit Shah is an influential person, and if granted bail, could prove dangerous for investigation in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, said Sohrabuddin`s brother Rubabuddin.



Ahmedabad: Former Gujarat minister Amit Shah
is an influential person, and if granted bail, could prove
dangerous for investigation in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake
encounter case, said Sohrabuddin`s brother Rubabuddin through
his lawyer before a special CBI court on Friday.

The submission was made before special CBI judge G K
Upadhyay hearing Rubabuddin`s plea to become a party in
opposing Shah`s bail plea.

Rubabuddin`s counsel Mukul Sinha contended that his
client was the original complainant upon whose petition the
Supreme Court asked state CID to probe into killing of
Sohrabuddin and later transferred the case to CBI.

Sinha submitted that Shah was an influential person, and
if granted bail, could prove dangerous for investigation and
could hamper further probe.

He also submitted that Shah through police officers and
criminals tried to bribe Rubabuddin and later threatened him
when he refused to withdraw the case. Therefore, the court
should listen to him before granting bail to Shah, Sinha said.
Shah`s counsel Nirupam Nanavati vehemently opposed
Rubabuddin`s plea and urged the court that there was no need
to join him as a party in the bail proceeding.

Judge Upadhaya after hearing the arguments kept the order
reserved till August 30.
