Sohrabuddin case: Setback to CBI as court rejects Amit Shah's remand plea

AHMEDABAD: A Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Court on Wednesday rejected the investigating agency's demand for seven-day custody of former Gujarat minister Amit Shah, arrested in connection with the killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh in a fake encounter in 2005.

The plea was rejected by Central Bureau of Investigation Special Judge A.I. Raval, an official said.

CBI had on July 23 produced a 30,000 page chargesheet and accused Shah of murder, abduction and conspiracy in the staged shootout case.

Shah has been in judicial custody since July 25 after he surrendered.
