Ahmedabad: Even as the noose tightened around former Gujarat home minister Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, the CBI on Tuesday made another high-profile arrest, this time netting the brother of a BJP corporator.

Raju Jirawala, owner of Arham Farm – the farmhouse where Sohrabuddin Sheikh’s wife Kausar Bi was killed – is the brother of Surendra Jirawala, who is a BJP corporator.

The charge sheet filed by CBI in the case states that Kausar Bi was murdered in Arham Farm, which is located on outskirts of Gandhinagar.

When the luxury bus of Sangeeta travels was intercepted on November 21, 2005 in Sangli in Maharashtra and Sohrabuddin was taken into custody, Gujarat Police had asked Kausar Bi who was travelling with him, to get back into the bus, the charge sheet said. But Kausar Bi refused to leave her husband and so Gujarat Police officials decided to take her along, it said.

Sohrabuddin and Kausar Bi were kept in Disha Farm till night of November 25, 2005, and then they were taken to Arham Farm, from where Sohrabuddin was taken to Ahmedabad and killed in a fake encounter, it said.

Meanwhile, Amit Shah will get a copy of the CBI charge sheet today, a day before he faces questioning by the agency.

Shah on Monday had moved the special CBI court for bail, which said it would hear his plea on August 2. Veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani will assist Shah’s advocates in the plead for bail.

Jethmalani today accused the CBI of leaking to the media details of the charge sheet against Shah.

“The accused does not have the charge sheet but the media has it. This is the CBI’s design,” Jethmalani alleged.

Earlier, former Gujarat Deputy Superintendent of Police, M K Amin turned approver against Shah in connection with the fake encounter case.

Amin is one of the three main accused IPS officers involved in the encounter case. The other two are D G Vanzara and R K Pandian.
