Latest News

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) finally has evidence to establish that the Sohrabuddin Shaikh and Tulsi Prajapati fake encounter cases were linked.

Informed sources said the investigating agency will soon furnish substantial evidence and statements that prove the connection between both the cases . Sources said immediately after Sohrabuddin was killed in November 2005, the conspiracy to eliminate Tulsi was hatched. Tulsi Prajapati was killed in December 2006.

The Special Investigating Team (SIT) of the CBI has collected a bunch of proofs and recorded seven important statements under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code which reveal an inter-connection between the encounters.

Sources said the statements of the key people connected, directly or indirectly, with the Tulsi case have revealed the Tulsi killing was a cold-blooded murder. The CBI claims it has also got evidence which solves the mystery of the third person who was picked up along with Sobrabuddin and Kausarbi. Sources claim that person was Tulsi.

The state CID (Crime), which had investigated the Tulsi Prajapati case, had stated in its chargesheet that there was no connection between the Sohrab and Tulsi encounters. However, the CBI disagreed and, after being handed over the probe by the Supreme Court, it started investigations in this direction.

Talking to DNA, sources close to the development said there was vital material evidence that the CBI had accessed during the Tulsi investigation which prove his killing was a fallout of the Sohrabuddin killing. The CBI has already submitted its chargesheet saying Sohrabuddin was killed in a fake encounter.

“If Sohrabuddin was not killed, Tulsi may still have been alive,” a source said. The CBI status report, which it will submit in the Supreme Court sometime this week, will include material evidence and statements establishing a connection between the two encounters.
