In a hearing relating to the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin, the Gujarat government today told the Supreme Court that CBI is giving communal twist to the case.
The state went on to say that it was wrong on the part of CBI to cast aspersions on lower Judiciary in Gujarat. The CBI officers had alleged that prosecuters and magistrate in the trial court trying Sohrabuddin encounter case were relatives of Amit Shah, who is one of the accused in the case.
The bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice Ranjana Desai slammed the CBI for making allegations against the judiciary in Gujarat just for ensuring the transfer of trial of Shorabuddin fake encounter case outside Gujarat
The bench observed, "...to suggest that judiciary even at the lower level is trying to favour politicians is complete non- sense. To systematise the judiciary and say it is toeing the political line, we disapprove it. We will protect the judiciary, though one or two individual may commit mistakea..."
The Gujarat government objected to CBI affidavit asking the apex court to initiate contempt proceedings against the CBI
