Narmadabai Gangaram Prajapati, the mother of Tulsi Prajapati, the slain associate of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, who too was killed in a fake gun battle, has asked Gujarat police to halt their probe as it was a ruse to thwart a federal agency investigation. “The manner in which the Gujarat police woke up suddenly and started arresting its own officers after remaining inactive for over three years gives enough reasons to believe that justice will not be done,” said Narmadabai, in a notice to Gujarat Director General of Police S.S. Khandwawala. She said the police’s crime branch started arresting several police officers only after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Ahmedabad’s Deputy Commissioner of Police Abhay Chudasama in connection with the Sohrabuddin killing. The crime branch was suddenly activated to prevent the CBI from taking any further action, she alleged. Tulsi Prajapati was killed on December 26, 2006, in what the police claimed was a gun battle when he tried to escape from their custody and opened fire.
