SC rejects petition against Amit Shah in Sohrabuddin encounter
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a petition challenging the discharge of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin encounter case.
The petition was filed by social activist Harsh Mander and the Apex court said Mander did not have any capacity to bring the matter into court.
Mander, in his petition, pleaded the court to quash the December 30, 2014 order of a Mumbai sessions court which gave a clean chit to Amit Shah in the case.
The social activist has also questioned the findings of the sessions court in the Tulsiram Prajapati killing case.
It may be mentioned that Sohrabuddin, a dreaded gangster, was killed by Gujarat police along with his wife Kausar Bi in 2005.
Tulsiram, a close aide of the gangster and an eyewitness to the encounter, was also killed in 2006.
