NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has dismissed a plea seeking review of its decision upholding the clean chit given by subordinate courts to BJP President Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

The apex court rejected the plea of activist Harsh Mander challenging the order by which it had dismissed the appeal against the discharge of the BJP leader in the case by the Bombay High Court upholding the trial court order.

"We have perused the review petition and the connected papers. We do not find any error in the order impugned, much less an apparent error on the face of the record so as to call for its review.
"The review petition is accordingly dismissed," a bench of Justices S A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan said in its order of October 19.
