AAP hits out at CBI over Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case

The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday accused the CBI of taking a 'U-turn' and "weakening" the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case in which BJP president Amit Shah is among the accused.



New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday accused the CBI of taking a 'U-turn' and "weakening" the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case in which BJP president Amit Shah is among the accused.

Addressing a news conference here, party leaders Ashish Khetan and Yogendra Yadav alleged that the CBI was presenting a "wishy washy and weak" case to the court in Mumbai to give Shah an escape route.

Yadav said that CBI has not yet appointed a special public prosecutor in the case, which reflected the "seriousness" of the investigating agency.

"Earlier, while in the opposition, the BJP would say that CBI was a Congress Bureau of Investigation, but now, it is doing the same thing. The AAP will raise the issue at every forum to prevent the country's premier investigating agency from being compromised. " Yadav said.

The CBI has charge-sheeted Shah, a former Minister of State for Home of Gujarat, and 37 others, including several police officers, in the two cases of alleged fake encounters in which ganster Sheikh, his wife and another person were killed.
