CBI challenges lower court order on Amit Shah's remand

The CBI on Thursday challenged in the Gujarat High Court, the order of lower court rejecting its plea for remand of former Gujarat Minister Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.
A petition in this regard has been filed in the High Court by the CBI today, sources said.

CBI's plea demanding 10-day custody of Shah was rejected yesterday by the court saying the probe agency does not have substantial grounds to seek his remand.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate A Y Dave rejected the CBI's application saying the agency was earlier given time to question Shah inside jail for three days, but they quizzed him for only for three hours. Hence, the CBI demand for Shah's remand cannot be entertained, the court said.

The CBI had demanded custody of Shah, saying that he did not cooperate during interrogation in jail.
