Gujarat not exempted from enforcement of rule of law: Moily
New Delhi: Welcoming the Supreme Court order
directing the CBI to investigate the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake
encounter case, Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Tuesday said
Gujarat was "not exempted" from the enforcement of law.
"Rule of law applies to every territory...territory of
Gujarat is not exempted from the enforcement of the rule of
law," he said here.
Moily said Gujarat government was "mistaken" in thinking
that "in the name of encounter you can kill anybody".
The Law Minister asserted that anybody, "however high or
low he may be," is bound by the rule of law, including the
state governments and the Centre.
When reminded that Congress had also demanded a CBI probe
into the 2005 encounter, he said "It is not a question of
Congress party, it is the question of rule of law."
