Sohrabuddin’s brother hints at conspiracy: Amit Shah’s name added by CBI in 2010, had not named him

Nayamuddin Shaikh, brother of Sohrabuddin Shaikh revealed to a special CBI court on Monday that the CBI had on its own added the names of Gujarat police officer Abhay Chudasama and BJP president Amit Shah to his statement recorded in 2010 relating to the Sohrabuddin encounter.

Nayamuddin appeared as the first prosecution witness after the court had issued numerous summons and also a non-bailable warrant against him. In his deposition to the court, he said that the CBI was the reason for spoiling the case.

Nayamuddin has also revealed to the court that he had given a handwritten affidavit before the special court in Ahmedabad clarifying that he had never said any things that are wrongly attributed to him in his 2010 statement. This high profile case is related to the encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife Kausar Bi, and aide Tulsi Prajapati. The CBI had earlier given clean chit to Chudasma and Shah in the encounter case.

He clarified that he is not facing any threat whatsoever from the BJP. “I have never heard Azam Khan’s name. An investigating officer of the CBI, Dagar sahab, came to my village in an autorickshaw to inquire about this case. I have not said before him that Azam (Sohrabuddin’s associate and co-accused in Hamid Lala murder case) met me and said that Abhay Chudasama offered Rs 50 lakh to withdraw a petition filed in Supreme Court to inquire into the death of my brother,” Nayamuddin told the court.

Appearing at the special CBI court on Monday, Nayamuddin said that he had last seen his brother and sister-in-law when he dropped them off to a bus stand at Indore when they were travelling to Hyderabad. He went on to say that he got to know about the encounter days after his brother went missing. He then denied charges that Gujarat Police officer Abhay Chudasma had threatened him for naming Amit Shah in his petition.

The CBI in its charge sheet recorded Nayamuddin’s statements, which reads, “When I told him (Chudasama) that we will not withdraw the petition at any cost, he threatened me with dire consequences and said that I would also face the same fate as Sohrabuddin. You do not know Amitbhai is very angry. I will speak to Amitbhai and he can get it done in Madhya Pradesh only. It is Amitbhai’s government there and you will be killed for making him a party in the petition,” Nayamuddin’s statement cited in the CBI’s charge sheet stated.

Nayamuddin, however, has said that this part of his statements was added by the CBI officer DS Dagar in 2010. He claims that he had asked the CBI officer the reason for including these fake statements attributed to his name and he said that the officer replied that he did not want innocent people to be punished.
