Apex court reserves verdict on Amit Shah’s plea

The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its verdict on a petition by Gujarat’s former minister of state for home Amit Shah challenging the filing of a separate chargesheet by the CBI in the Tulsiram Prajapati killing case.

Prajapti was killed in a police shootout on 28 December, 2006.

The apex court bench of Justice P  Sathasivam and Justice B S Chauhan reserved the verdict upon the conclusion of arguments by senior counsel Mahesh Jethmalani, who appeared for Shah, and Additional Solicitor General Harin Raval who represented the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Shah contended that the chargesheet in the Prajapati case could be a supplementary chargesheet in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh staged shootout and the killing of his wife as both the killings were part of the same transaction (crime). Sohrabuddin was killed in a staged shootout by Gujarat police on 26 November, 2005.
