Sohrabuddin: AAP slams CBI, BJP says ‘meaningless’ charge

CBI had not yet appointed a special public prosecutor in the case which reflected the “seriousness” of the agency.

The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday alleged that the CBI was “changing its stand” and “weakening” the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case in which BJP president Amit Shah is one of the accused. The BJP hit back, saying it “will not respond to meaningless allegations”.

Addressing a press conference, AAP leaders Yogendra Yadav and Ashish Khetan alleged the CBI was presenting “an extremely weak case” to give Shah “an escape route”.

Yadav said the CBI had not yet appointed a special public prosecutor in the case which reflected the “seriousness” of the agency.

Reacting to AAP’s allegations, BJP vice-president and Delhi in-charge Prabhat Jha said, “There is no need to respond to such meaningless allegations. Before levelling allegations against Amit Shah, the Aam Aadmi Party should look at itself.”

AAP spokesperson Ashutosh criticised distribution of compensation cheques by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to the kin of those killed in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, calling it “politically motivated” ahead of Assembly elections in Delhi.

    “There is no need to respond to such meaningless allegations. Before levelling allegations against Amit Shah, the Aam Aadmi Party should look at itself.” Is it not a response by BJP? However, one thing is to be admitted. There is no match to BJP persons in twisting, U-Turning, distorting etc of facts by the spokespersons of any other party. They seems to have training from some insutions like that of 'Goebbelsinian' insute to turn lies into truths.

      Why baseless accusation? CBI said they had proof against Amit Shah......It is a pity that there is no justice in India. Not only that, the criminals are made party heads....s:pbs.twimg/media/B5...

        CBI is and was a caged parrot- the cage changes hands -but no ground reality changes.. according to the papers AAP has released- Amit Shah lawyers argued the for the case to be dropped for 3 days and in 15 min -CBI gave its opinion...no rebuttal what so ever?They haven't even appointed a special prosecutor for the case? Why? CBI has been constantly and consistently along with various other organisation has always called Amit Shah as the king pin running the illegal activities..n now suddenly -there being a BJP Govt in centre and Amit shah being the president of BJP- CBI has no case to argue for? Would it surprise you that Amit Shah not only walks free but also gets compensation for maligning his name? What say taxpayers-that will be fun-won't it..Disgusted with CBI and BJP Nexus
