Mumbai: The process of trial in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case moved a step forward with a local court issuing summons to all the 18 accused, including former Gujarat minister Amit Shah.
The court directed them to appear before it on November 9.
"On November 9, all the accused will be appearing before the court. The local court will then commit the case to the special CBI court," said special CBI prosecutor Ejaz Khan. The Gujarat High Court on October 16 had dispatched records pertaining to the case to Bombay High Court.
The Supreme Court on September 27 ordered the transfer of the 2005 case to Maharashtra after the CBI said witnesses were being intimidated and the trial could not be held in a free
and fair manner in Gujarat.
