Sohrabuddin sheikh’s fake encounter and his wife kausar Bi’s murder by Gujarat Police has shocked the people of India and strong reactions are coming from different sections of society. This is a clear example of cold-blooded killing by the state machinery. On this episode, the central government has advocated to the court for a CBI probe to reveal the people behind the fake encounter plot.
Shankersinh Vaghela, the Union minister for textiles, has also demanded for CBI investigation into the matter. He also said that CM Narendra Modi and state home minister Amit Shah should be charged with the murder of Sheikh, Kauserbi and Tulsi Prajapati.
On the other hand, the Gujarat government has opposed a CBI inquiry and said that a special investigating team is already in the charge and the government has arrested three IPS officers in the matter.
The Gujarat government has criticized the center for playing politics in the criminal case.
However, the Congress, and the Left parties have asked for the CBI inquiry into the fake encounter.
The parties have charged the Narendra Modi government for orchestrating the killings of the couple.
Later, BJP refused to comment on this by saying that the matter is sub judice.
Bharat Solanki, Gujarat Congress chief has blamed that the Modi government had violated the National Human Rights Commission’s guidelines.
The revised guidelines of NHRC say that police officers should not be given the authority to investigate the allegations of the crime those officers belong to the same police stations under which fake encounters taken place. It says further that the matter should go to an independent investigating agency.
