A PIL has been filed in the Supreme Court against BJP MPs Prakash Javdekar and Bhupendra Singh Yadav,alleging that they tried to impede investigation in the Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case in which former Gujarat Home minister Amit Shah is the main accused.
The petition,filed by a journalist on the basis of a sting operation done by him,alleged that attempts were made by the MPs to impede the trial and other judicial proceedings in this regard by manipulating the complainant with the sole intent to protect Shah. The two MPs,however,declined to comment on the charges against them.
Pushp Kumar Sharma,the petitioner,alleged that he had captured the criminal conspiracy hatched and executed by MPs,senior BJP leaders and advocates on concealed cameras as part of his undercover investigation. He also filed CDs of the video footage along with his petition.
He claimed that he had caught the two parliamentarians on tape discussing how to get blank vakalatnamas signed by the mother of Prajapati,who was killed in a fake encounter in 2006.
