CBI demand for Shah remand rejected
A CBI court Wednesday rejected the agency’s demand for a seven-day custody of former Gujarat minister Amit Shah, arrested for the 2005 killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh.
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special judge A.I. Raval’s ruling stunned the agency. “The CBI may challenge the decision. The CBI may go to the high court,” a source in CBI told IANS.
The CBI had July 23 produced a 3,000-page chargesheet and accused Shah of murder, abduction and conspiracy in the case of alleged staged shootout.
Shah has been in judicial custody since July 25.
