New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is being misused to target and implicate Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in fake encounter cases, senior BJP leader Aun Jaitley has alleged in a letter written to the Prime Minister.

It was reported on Tuesday that the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha has accused the Centre of exploiting the apex probe agency for political mileage.
The BJP leader has reportedly maintained in his letter addressed to the Prime Minister that the CBI arrested former Gujarat home minister Amit Shah without any prosecutable evidence.

Jaitley also stated that the CBI relied on false testimonies to arrest Shah.
In his letter, the BJP leader also said that in the Ishrat Jehan case, CBI struck deals with some suspects to trap others.

Jaitley concluded by demanding a thorough probe by a panel led by a Supreme Court judge into charges of politicisation of CBI investigation into cases of alleged fake encounters in Gujarat.
