Sohrabuddin case: Gujarat Govt says will cooperate with law
Ahmedabad: The Gujarat Government on Thursday said it will cooperate with the process of law on the issue of summons to Minister of State for Home Amit Shah in
the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.
"I have come to know about it (issue of summons) from the media. Whatever is the process of law one will follow it," Government spokesman Jaynarayan Vyas said.
The government`s statement comes hours after the CBI asked Shah to appear before it today for questioning in the 2005 case. Shah held the same portfolio in 2005.
Meanwhile, the state BJP lashed out at the Congress for "misuse" of Central probe agency.
"The Congress is misusing the CBI against BJP-ruled states," BJP leader and MP Vijay Rupani said in Rajkot.
"Many encounters have taken place in several other states, but the party (Congress) is not keen on demanding CBI investigation in those cases," Rupani said.
The CBI is being used by the Congress-led UPA at the Centre to destabilise non-Congress governments in the states, he claimed.
Sohrabuddin, an alleged gangster, was killed in an "encounter" by Gujarat Police near here in November 2005. CBI took over the investigation into the case and the mysterious
murder of Sohrabuddin`s wife Kausar Bi in January this year on the direction of the Supreme Court.
