CBI custody for IPS officer in Sohrabuddin case
Ahmedabad: An IPS officer and an inspector
accused in the Sohrabuddin Shiekh fake encounter case of 2005
have been sent to CBI custody for four days by a local court
CBI had sought 14 days custody of N K Amin and V A
Rathod, arrested by the previous investigation agency state
CID crime, for further questioning in the Sohrabuddin fake
Amin was assistant commissioner of police (ACP) city
crime branch before being arrested based on statement of a
witness involved in the operation of abducting Sohrabuddin and
his wife Kausar Bi. Rathod, a police inspector, is
alleged of being involved in disposing of the body of Kausar
The duo had opposed CBI`s plea saying that remand was
unwarranted as they have already been questioned in this
CBI court judge V B Barot after hearing arguments of both
the parties, sent Amin and Rathod to CBI custody from May 20
to May 24.
They filed an application seeking stay on the court order
to challenge it in the Gujarat High Court. The duo had
contended that the order was a unique one where remand is
given three years after the accused were arrested and that too
to an investigating agency, which had not made the arrest.
The application was, however, rejected.
