The Modi government, in April 2007, admitted that Sohrabuddin was killed in a fake encounter and his wife Kausarbi was also killed by the police. Rubabuddin, brother of Sohrabuddin, on July 27 said that C.B.I. should also question Narendra Modi for his role in Sohrabuddin fake encounter case. He emphasised that Modi’s Minister of State for Home Amit Shah had directed Sohrabuddin’s elimination.
There have been dozens of such fake encounters in Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, U.P., Delhi, etc. where a large number of innocent citizens, mostly Muslims, were killed in cold blood. UPA Government must initiate high level probe into all the fake encounters and punish all the culprits and their masters. To restore people’s faith in governance and judiciary, the sooner criminals are punished the better.
