The Supreme Court on Friday granted two more weeks to the CBI to complete its probe in the alleged fake encounter killing of Tulsiram Prajapati,a close aide of Sohrabuddin Sheikh. Directing the CBI to complete the probe by August 14,a bench of justices B S Chauhan and Swatanter Kumar made it clear that no more extension will be given to the agency. The SC had earlier directed the agency to complete its investigation by July 30.

The court had ordered the CBI probe into the case in April 2011 on an appeal by Prajapati’s mother Narmada Bai,who had alleged that her son was killed by the Gujarat Police in a staged gun battle because he was an eyewitness to the November 2005 killings of Sohrabuddin and his wife Kausar Bi.
