Rahul attacks BJP as chief investigating officer names Amit Shah key conspirator in Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case

New Delhi, Nov 22 (UNI) Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked the BJP on the reported statement by Sandeep Tamgadge, chief investigating officer in the 2006 Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case, that party president Amit Shah was a key conspirator in the controversial killing.

Taking to twitter, Rahul said,’’the Gita says you can never escape the truth and so it has always been. Sandeep Tamgadge has called Amit Shah a “key conspirator” in his testimony.

It’s completely appropriate for the BJP to have such a man as its President.’’

In a testimony before the special Central Bureau of Investigation court in Mumbai on Wednesday, Sandeep Tamgadge, chief investigating officer in the 2006 Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case, has said that Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah and IPS officers D.G. Vanzara, Dinesh M.N. and Rajkumar Pandiyan were the “principal conspirators” in the controversial killing.

In his deposition recorded on November 21, the 2001 batch IPS officer told the court that Shah was a part of the “criminal-politician-police nexus” and Prajapati, his associate Sohrabuddin Shaikh and Sohrabuddin’s wife Kausar Bi were killed at the behest of this trio.
