Extortion motive behind Sohrabuddin`s killing: CBI

Extortion of money was the main motive behind the killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and his wife Kausar Bi in November 2005 by a Gujarat Police team, the CBI on Wednesday claimed.



Ahmedabad: Extortion of money was the main
motive behind the killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and his wife
Kausar Bi in November 2005 by a Gujarat Police team, the CBI
on Wednesday claimed before a court here while seeking further remand
of arrested DCP Abhay Chudasama in connection with the case.

Judge V B Barot hearing the case, however, rejected CBI`s
demand for extension of the IPS officer`s custody and sent him
to judicial remand.

Chudasama is the fourth IPS officer to be arrested in the
fake encounter case. He was produced in court after his CBI
custody ended today.

While requesting for extension of his custody, CBI lawyer
L D Tiwari said Chudasama was non-cooperative during his
interrogation in the last six days of his remand.

He told the court the investigation has revealed that
extortion of money was the main motive behind the alleged
killing of Sohrabuddin and his wife Kausar Bi.

While seeking a seven-day extension of his remand period,
Tiwari apprised the court about the searches conducted by the
CBI at various places.

Tiwari claimed that during the search at Chudasama`s
office they have recovered ammunitions, memory cards, CDs,
floppies, mobile phones and a laptop computer which were sent
for analysis.
