CBI wants to arrest me again, Shah tells SC

NEW DELHI: Gujarat’s former minister of state for Home Amit Shah on Tuesday told the Supreme Court (SC) that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a separate chargesheet in Tulsiram Prajapti staged shoot-out case just to take him into custody again.

“It is whole perfidy of the CBI that after taking over the investigation (from the Gujarat Police) it is saying that two (Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsiram Prajapti) are separate cases with a sinister motive of to get me arrested again,” Amit Shah told a bench of Justice P. Sathasivam and Justice BS Chauhan.

Appearing for Shah, senior counsel Mahesh Jethmalani told the court that all though the CBI has parroted the theory of a “larger conspiracy” — that staged killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, continued with that of his wife Kausarbi, and culminating in the killing of Tulsiram Prajapti —were a part of same transaction but now it was doing a somersault.

“The larger conspiracy was the umbrella for the CBI for taking over investigation in Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsiram Prajapati encounter case and now it could not take contrary stand and file a separate charge-sheet,” he argued.

Contending that the chargesheet in Prajapati case should be treated as a supplementary chargesheet in Sohrabuddin case being tried in Mumbai, Jethmalani said: “It is perplexing and intriguing that they (CBI) should take a contrary stand and it shows malafide.”
