CBI likely to name Amit Shah in Tulsi case

CBI has dismissed claim of state CID (crime) that the third person with Sohrabuddin and his wife was Kalimuddin

  With the countdown for the completion of the investigation in the Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case having started, the CBI is all set to submit the chargesheet in the case in the next few days. If sources are to be believed, the CBI would be naming former minister and BJP leader Amit Shah as one of the key accused in the case.
Sources said the CBI had concluded that Prajapati was killed because of his knowledge of murder of the gangster, Sohrabuddin Sheikh, in a staged encounter by the Gujarat police. Sohrabuddin was killed in a fake encounter a year before Tulsi was slain in another staged encounter by Gujarat police.
Shah was earlier arrested for his involvement in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case and may soon be in legal trouble because of the Tulsi Prajapati case. Sources further claimed that Shah has also been named by CBI as one of the conspirators in Tulsi case.
The sources further said that the central probe agency had found that Shah was aware of the fact that Tulsi was to be killed in a staged encounter.
The CBI has also countered the conclusions reached by the Gujarat police when the case was investigated by the state CID (crime). The sources said that the CBI has dismissed the Gujarat police's assertion that the 'mysterious' third person travelling with Sohrabuddin and his wife, Kauserbi, when they were picked up by a Gujarat police team, was Kalimuddin.
The sources further said that CID (crime), in its chargesheet, had not said the third person with Sohrabuddin and his wife was Tulsi Prajapati.
