Ahmedabad: The CBI Sunday completed two-day
custodial interrogation of former Gujarat minister Amit Shah,
arrested in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, who
was later remanded to judicial custody.

After grilling 46-year-old Shah for over eight hours, the
CBI produced him before Chief Additional Judicial Magistrate A
Y Dave at his residence who sent him to judicial custody till
August 21.

Before sending Shah to judicial custody, the Magistrate
asked him whether he wanted to say anything. He replied he
had nothing to tell the court.

Shah will now be lodged in the Sabarmati Central Jail.

Shah, who was kept in a lock-up at the CBI office last
night in Gandhinagar, was brought for interrogation at the
agency`s office at the Old Secretariat Campus.

He was grilled by the CBI for over nine hours yesterday.

On August six, the High Court set aside a lower court
order and remanded the former minister of state for home to
two-day CBI custody.

It also rejected his plea for videography of his
questioning.

The CBI had sought Shah`s remand on the ground that he
was the "kingpin" of the entire conspiracy leading to the
encounter of Sohrabuddin, killing of his wife Kausarbi and
Tulsi Prajapati, a key witness.
