Sibal blasts Modi over his fake encounter remark

New Delhi, Dec 7 (ANI): Union Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal today lashed out against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his inflammatory remarks about the 2005 fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh.

The counsel for the Gujarat government has now resigned, saying that Modi should not have said it. It is the same counsel who filed the affidavit in the Supreme Court, saying this Vanzara should be prosecuted. And of course we still don’t know where Prajapati is? We still don’t know what happened to Kausar Bi?, Sibal said.

Sohrabuddin Sheikh was reportedly gunned down on November 26, 2005 after being branded a Lashkar-e-Toiba militant by the Gujarat Police, allegedly trying to hatch a conspiracy to kill Modi. The cops also allegedly killed Sohrabuddin’s wife, Kausar Bi.

On the Supreme Court’s directive, the Gujarat Government had constituted a CID team under IGP Geetha Johri to investigate the case.

On November 13, an Ahmedabad court had rejected the bail petitions of IPS officer D G Vanzara, and six others, who are the prime suspects in the 2005 Sohrabbudin Sheikh fake encounter case.

Two IPS officers of Gujarat Police– Vanzara and Rajkumar Pandyan– and one of Rajasthan Police– Dinesh Kumar- allegedly executed the encounter in November 2005.

Slamming Narendra Modi, Sibal said the Gujarat Government talks about Rama, but it doesn’t follow the tenet.

Congress party has also said, we believe in Ram. When did the Congress party say that it didn’t believe in Ram. Parties can’t believe in gods, individuals can. I’m a Hindu and I believe in Ram. Some people may not, he said. (ANI)
