New Delhi:In a new turn in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, senior Gujarat-cadre IPS officer Geetha Johri has accused the CBI of pressurising her to implicate some political leaders, including arrested BJP leader Amit Shah.
In a curative petition filed with the apex court, she has sought the removal of Balwinder Singh, CBI's Special Director who is supervising the investigation into the case, and said he be made a witness in it.
Johri accused CBI of pressurising her to implicate some politicians, including Gujarat's former minister of state for Home Amit Shah who has already been arrested in connection with the killing of Sheikh in a fake encounter with police in Ahmedabad in 2005.
She alleged she had been asked by CBI to depose in a particular manner in the case and that her personal assistant was threatened by CBI.
