- Gujarat HC grants bail to dismissed Coast Guard sailor, registry accepts his bond
- Gujarat: After multiple thefts, former IAS officer Pradeep Sharma gets five-day bail to secure house
- Sohrabuddin Shaikh ‘fake’ encounter case: CBI refuses to make submissions in plea challenging discharge of former Gujarat SP
A single-judge bench of the Gujarat High Court (HC) on Friday reserved its verdict for September 28 on the bail petition of suspended IPS officer Abhay Chudasama in the 2005 Sohrabuddin Shaikh encounter case.
In August last year,the special CBI court in Ahmedabad had dismissed Chudasamas bail petition following which he had approached HC.
His petition was heard by the bench of Justice Abhilasha Kumari after several judges recused themselves from hearing the same.
While the CBI has opposed Chudasamas bail plea,the IPS officer has proposed before the HC that he is ready to stay away from not only Gujarat but also,Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh to which witnesses in the case belonged.
Sohrabuddin Shaikhs brother Rubabuddin also appeared before the court and opposed the petition.
