Ahmedabad: A local court here today granted 25 days time to the CBI to reply on a plea seeking to make former Gujarat minister Amit Shah and ex-DGP K R Kaushik accused in the 2004 Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case.  

The plea was moved by Gopinath Pillai, father of one of the deceased of the encountered Pranesh Pillai alias Javed Sheikh before special CBI Judge Geeta Gopi.  

Today, appearing before the court, the CBI advocate sought 30 days time to consider the plea.  Opposing this, victim's advocate Shamshad Pathan told the court, “When CBI has all the evidence against those accused persons, why the probe agency needs time.”

“This is a crucial time when the elections are being conducted and their (Shah and Kaushik) free movements can cause harm,” advocate Pathan said further.  

Reacting, CBI court told the victim's lawyer to refrain himself from addressing those persons as accused when prosecution has not yet decided on the plea.
