Amin is one of the three main accused IPS officers involved in the encounter case. The other two are D.G. Vanzara, and R.K. Pandian.

Amin had submitted an application in this regard through his lawyer before a Gandhinagar court.

The move may help the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) solve the case.

The CBI has filed a 30,000-page charge sheet against Shah, accusing him of complicity in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.
