Last Updated 21 April 2014, 10:17 IST

Law Minister Kapil Sibal Monday said BJP leader Narendra Modi's close aide Amit Shah is accused in the triple murders of Sohrabuddin, Kausar Bi and Tulsi Ram Prajapati.

Sibal, at a press conference Monday, read out excerpts from a CBI report, and said strong circumstantial evidence suggests that Shah is involved in the "murders".

"Amit Shah, accused in three murder cases is leading Narendra Modi's campaign," Sibal said.
"Evidence suggests that Gujarat chief minister's office was directly involved in the 2002 ('murder') conspiracy," Sibal said.

Sibal said call records show that an OSD in the chief minister's office, Parag Shah, was in constant touch with suspended IPS officers D.G. Vanzara and Rajkumar Pandian.
Shah was an OSD in Modi's office between 2003 and 2008.

"I am just producing documents before you (journalists), I want to know why this investigation has not bee carried forward," he added.
