Three key accused in the Sohrabuddin Shaikh encounter case including the first investigating officer denied any role in the killing.

The then deputy superintendent of police M L Parmar, who was part of the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) and is currently the senior-most former officer facing trial, said that he filed seven panchnama and CBI has relied on it.

Appearing on his behalf, senior counsel S P Raju said: "The investigations and the summary report was accepted by the Magistrate. There is no evidence against him that he was asked to probe does not prove that he was in abduction, confinement and murder."

Raju also defended Inspector Narayansing Dhabi.

"There are allegations that he fired. It was proved that the rounds were fired from the same revolver, but the CBI had no evidence that the revolver was in his possession."

Appearing on behalf of Balkrishna Choubey, advocate Devendra Shukla said: "He was not part of the conspiracy, encounter or any such operation."

Raju said that it is the burden on prosecution to prove the crime beyond reasonable doubt.

"No judgement should be based on morality, but on evidence. The evidence has to be legal, reliable and unimpeachable. From may be true to must be true, it takes a long distance to travel."
