How CBI betrayed Court to save Congress

published on August 14, 2011

The Supreme Court entrusted the Sohrabuddin case to the CBI for two reasons- one, to identify the conspirators from Andhra Pradesh police; two, to ensure a fair probe in Gujarat. The Attorney General had told the Court that the CBI alone could probe AP police. Result, the Court trusted the CBI to identify the offenders from AP police. See how the CBI honoured Court’s trust.

The CBI entered the case in February 2010, filed a chargesheet in July.

The charge sheet (Para 18-20) explicitly accused that AP Police was also party to the plot to kill Sohrabuddin; that Gujarat and AP Police jointly intercepted the bus carrying Sohrabuddin couple from Hyderabad to Sangli, disembarked them, and took them to Ahmedabad where they were murdered; that two Tata Sumo vehicles with AP Police officials had joined the kidnap caravan to Gujarat. Having found AP Police involved, the CBI, in its first report told the Court on 30.7.2010, “efforts to identify the (AP) police officers are in progress”.

But, in just 120 days, (in its final report dt 30.11.2010) the CBI somersaulted, mysteriously. And told the Court that the AP Police was not—yes, NOT— involved in the offence; thus quickly closed the case against them! The CBI’s U-turn is shocking, even bizarre. If the AP Police were innocent as CBI now says, did, as its own charge heet found, the two drivers of Tata Sumos (of AP police) converge their vehicles in front of the bus in which Sohrabuddin couple were and stop it at midnight, for fun; or, for them to watch the free reality night show of kidnapping by the Gujarat Police; and, did they join the all night caravan ride to Ahmedabad for sightseeing; again, did they play host to the Gujarat Police for a free ticket to watch the drama? Absurd yes, but unanswerable, questions.
