The notice asked Shah, who was Minister of State for Home in Gujarat when the encounter took place, why he should not be made an accused in the case.

The court also issued notice to then Ahmedabad Police Commissioner KR Kaushik.

The notice was issued on the basis of a PIL filed by Gopinath Pillai, father of Javed Pillai who was among the four victims of the encounter.

So far, the investigating agency has filed two chargesheets in the case.
