"Rejected," a bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan said after nearly a half-an-hour hearing on the plea filed by former bureaucrat and social activist Harsh Mander.

Mander had challenged the Bombay High Court order which had upheld the discharge of the BJP president by the trial court in the case.

The court rejected the plea of Harish Mander that challenged the discharge of BJP president Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh ‘fake encounter case’.  The argument put on floor by lawyer Kapil Sibal, who is fighting the case on behalf of Mander, along with Rajeev Dhavan and Anand Grover, states that Mander could challenge Shah’s exoneration on the grounds that he was a ‘person aggrieved’.

To recall, a Mumbai sessions court had earlier given a clean chit to BJP president Amit Shah in the case on which Harish Mander filed the petition in Supreme Court seeking a quashing of the sessions court order.
