Gandhinagar, June 24 (Calcutta Tube) A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court Thursday rejected the bail applications of three policemen accused in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh staged shooting case.
The bail applications moved by two Rajsthan policemen and a Gujarat policeman, were rejected by Special CBI Judge A.Y. Dave.
Himanshusinh Rajavat and Shamsinh Charan, sub-inspectors of Rajasthan Police, and Narsinh Dabhi, an inspector with Gujarat Police, moved bail pleas before the court on the ground of delay in filing of CBI’s chargesheet.
However, the judge rejected their applications on the ground that the CBI is taking further the investigation and not undertaking a fresh investigation.
Therefore, the central agency is not under an obligation to file a chargesheet as it has to submit the report before the Supreme Court.
The CBI has taken over the investigation of the Sohrabuddin killing from Gujarat Police under orders of the apex court and has been given six months to file its report.
Sohrabuddin was allegedly gunned down by Gujarat Police in 2005.
