The CBI may soon examine BJP general secretary Amit Shah in connection with the allegations levelled by IPS officer D G Vanzara, who is currently lodged in Sabarmati jail, for his involvement in fake encounter cases.

Vanzara, who is lodged in prison over his alleged involvement in fake encounters including the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case, had stated in his resignation letter to the state home department on September 1 that the police forces had acted on government policies.

“I would like to categorically state in the most unequivocal words that the officers and men of the Crime Branch, ATS and Border Range, during the period of years between 2002 to 2007, simply acted and performed their duties in compliance of the conscious policy of this government in the context of following circumstances,” he had written in his resignation letter.

Shah, also a close aide of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was the Home Minister of the state, when the Ishrat Jahan and other fake encounter cases happened. 

The CBI has so far taken no decision regarding Shah’s questioning, and is currently examining Vanzara’s resignation.

 If the need arises, the CBI may also examine Shah. Vanzara had alleged that the state government was “inspiring, guiding and monitoring” every police action from “very close quarters”.
