Sohrabudin encounter case: Arun Jaitley flays Congress, CBI

Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley on Saturday said CBI investigation in the Sohrabudin encounter case has "harmed" the federal structure of the country.



Mumbai: Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley on Saturday
said CBI investigation in the Sohrabudin encounter case has
"harmed" the federal structure of the country.

"Law and order is a state subject and CBI can investigate
only central cases. It can investigate state-related cases
only with the consent of the state government. But this
federal structure is not applicable to the court," Jaitley
said while speaking at a symposium "Federalism, Law and
order and Vote Bank politics".

Jaitley alleged CBI was involved in vote management
during the cut motion and nuclear deal debate in Parliament.
Jaitley accused Congress of taking the country`s politics
in a different direction. "Congress may not win the next
assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh if the complete rout of
the party in the recent by-election is any indication.

"One should not be surprised if the next government
arrests the present state Home Minister in the murder charge
of a top Naxal leader who was killed in an encounter in the
state recently. Human rights activists and some (Naxal)
sympathisers have charged that the encounter was fake but the
Andhra government has stood its ground," the BJP leader said.

Referring to the unrest in Jammu and Kashmir, Jaitley
said separatists have changed their strategy to target the
Indian state through provocative mass action.

"Support to local separatists groups from across the
border to attack security forces and provoke them to take
action was brought to light recently", he said.
Former Punjab DGP K P S Gill said clear thinking and
strong action is necessary to tackle terrorism.

"The country also faces a threat from Human rights
activists," he said adding after the end of terrorism in
Punjab, 3000 cases of Rights violations were filed against the
Punjab police officers.

Deputy leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Gopinath
Munde said police have the right to take action in self
defence.

"When I was the home minister in Maharashtra, there were
400 encounters. Currently, 10,500 criminals are out on bail in
Mumbai and over 60,000 are roaming around freely elsewhere in
the state," he said.

He alleged discrimination against the Gujarat government
by the UPA government saying that the centre disallowed
Gujarat to enact its version of Maharashtra control of
organised crime act (MCOCA) when it allowed Tamil Nadu to do
the same.

He demanded investigation into the source of funds
received by NGOs.
