Manmohan Singh New Delhi, July 26 (IANS) The CBI is not the “Congress bureau of investigation”, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Monday, refuting the Bharatiya Janata Party’s allegations of conspiracy behind the arrest of its leader Amit Shah.
“CBI… is not Congress bureau of investigation. CBI is not a mouthpiece of the Congress,” Manmohan Singh told reporters outside parliament before the beginning of the monsoon session Monday.

He was answering questions on the opposition party’s allegation that the Congress-led central government was behind the arrest of former Gujarat minister Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh staged shootout case.

The prime minister stressed that the investigation into the 2005 Sohrabuddin Sheikh killing was initiated by the Supreme Court and the central government had nothing to do with it.
