    Ishrat case: Clean chit to Amit Shah?


    by TimesNow

    CBI on Thursday (February 6) lodged a second charge sheet in the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case against former Intelligence Bureau Special Director Rajinder Kumar and three officers slapping murder and conspiracy charges on them, but did not name former Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah who was questioned by the agency in the case. Notwithstanding denial of sanction to prosecute the officers by Law ministry, the CBI named Kumar, a 1979-batch IPS officer who retired last year, and P Mittal, M K Sinha and Rajiv Wankhede. They have been charged under section 120-B (criminal conspiracy), murder, wrongful confinement, kidnapping, wrongful concealment.
