Amit Shah gets SC relief in Sohrabuddin case
Social activist and former bureaucrat Harsh Mander had challenged Shah's acquittal in the alleged staged killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh
In a big relief for BJP president Amit Shah, the Supreme Court on Monday rejected a plea filed by social activist and former bureaucrat Harsh Mander challenging Shah's acquittal in the alleged staged killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh.
A bench of Justice S.A. Bobde and Justice Ashok Bhushan dismissed the plea by Mander, who had challenged the Bombay High Court order rejecting his plea against the discharge of Amit Shah on the grounds of the former bureaucrat's locus standi to do so.
Rejecting the plea by Mander, the bench said: "Where a person genuinely aggrieved moves the court, it takes a different colour, and another person who is not even remotely connected (moves the court)", it takes a different dimension.
