Gujarat shows proof it gave call records

New Delhi: The Sohrabuddin encounter case threw up a new twist on Wednesday with the Gujarat government producing in SC a 15-page list signed by a CBI SP acknowledging receipt of documents, including some call record CDs, after the probe was transferred from state police.

On Thursday, the court had rapped the Narendra Modi government for not handing over crucial mobile phone call records of accused ex-cop D G Vanzara and others to CBI and directed the state to provide the details by December 7.

Producing the records, Gujarat additional advocate general Tushar Mehta said, “If the CBI now says it has not received the call records, let the CBI officer file an affidavit detailing which documents he did not get.”

A bench of Justices Aftab Alam and Ranjana P Desai asked Mehta to hand over the memo to CBI for verification.
