More Gujarat cops likely to be arrested by CBI in Sohrab case

Based on the interrogation of Azam Khan, an important witness is Sohrab encounter case, CBI is likely to make some more arrests from Gujarat police. During investigation Azam has revealed to CBI that a senior IPS officer had saved Sohrabuddin in Haren Pandya murder case. Azam has also told the investigators that Abhay Chudasama, member of Gujarat ATS, had saved Sohrabuddin in Haren Pandya murder case. However in a significant development the CBI has sought permission from the Supreme Court to transfer the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case to Mumbai as it feels that the Gujarat police in one way or the other are helping Amit Shah who was arrested by the CBI on July 25 in connection with the case. Sohrabuddin and his wife Kausar Bi were killed in an alleged fake encounter in 2005.
