Another BJP leader discharged in Sohrabuddin case 27.2.2015 Asian Age: Mumbai
Two months after BJP president Amit Shah was discharged from the Sohrabuddin Shaikh and Tulsiram Prajapati encounter cases, the special CBI court on Thursday discharged two more accused in the case, including former Rajasthan home minister Gulabchand Kataria.

Judge Gosavi also announced that both Kataria and Patni were discharged from all charges for want of evidence. According to judge Gosavi, there is no credible evidence to show a link ...

The state government on Monday informed the Bombay high court that the police has arrested wanted former senior police officer Pradeep Suryavanshi in the Ramnarayan Gupta alias Lakhan Bhaiya fake encounter case and he was in jail. The state on Monday filed a report before the division bench of Justice P.V. Hardas and Justice Dr Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi informing them that the policeman who was in the list of absconding accused has been arrested and sent to jail. The court last week had directed the government to file a report by February 23, stating what steps it had taken so far to nab Suryavanshi in the case. The matter came up when the court was hearing an appeal filed by Lakhan Bhaiya’s brother advocate Ramprasad Gupta seeking enhancement of punishment for all the policemen involved in the fake encounter of his brother. During the hearing, the judges noticed that an FIR was registered against Suryavanshi because he was absconding since 2013 and asked the state to file a report in the court by Monday ...
