New Delhi: Former Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah has been questioned by CBI on Saturday in the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case.

Shah, who is a close aide of BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, may go through further questioning, said CBI official.

According to the officials, he is being questioned on the basis of the claims made by suspended Gujarat cadre IPS officer DG Vanzara, who had blamed that the Gujarat government equally responsible for police action in Ishrat Jahan`s encounter.

In September, BJP Rajya Sabha MPs Prakash Javadekar and Bhupendra Yadav were also questioned in connection with a video tape in which they were allegedly seen discussing ways to weaken case against Narendra Modi`s aide Amit Shah by influencing the mother of a victim of an alleged fake encounter in Gujarat.

Both Modi and Shah have accused Congress of misusing CBI.
