IN A RELIEF to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Chief, the Bombay High Court on Friday dismissed a petition questioning the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI’s) decision of not challenging a lower court order discharging Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.

A division bench comprising Justice Ranjit More and Justice Bharati Dangre, rejected the plea by the Bombay Lawyers Association (BLA) and said that it could not grant the relief sought in the PIL filed in January.

The BLA has questioned the Central Bureau of Investigation’s move not to challenge the discharge granted to Shah in 2014 by a Special CBI Court here. The PIL counsel Dushyant Dave had contended that the CBI changed its stance after the change of Government at the Centre in 2014.
