Judge hearing Shah's case transferred

The special CBI judge hearing the fake encounter cases of gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsi Prajapati, was on Wednesday transferred, following which the court adjourned the hearing on  Amit Shah’s discharge plea.

Special CBI Judge J T Utpat was transferred to Pune, after which the court hearing was adjourned till July 2.

Incidentally, last week, judge Utpat had reprimanded Shah’s advocate for filing an exemption application without assigning any reason.

“Every time you are giving this exemption application without assigning any reason,” judge Utpat had said.

The court had on May 9 issued summons to Shah and other accused in the case, which had been transferred from Gujarat.

The CBI had charge-sheeted Shah and 18 others, including several police officers in the case, last September.
