A special CBI court here on Monday adjourned till September 7 hearing on the bail application of former Gujarat minister Amit Shah, arrested in connection with the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.

Special CBI Judge G.K. Upadhyay adjourned the matter after Shah’s counsel sought more time as their senior counsel Ram Jethmalani could not come for the hearing.

This the third time that the matter has been adjourned as Jethmalani was not able to appear in the court.

Mr. Shah, a former Minister of State for Home and close aide of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was arrested by CBI on July 25 in connection with the fake encounter case and charged with murder, extortion and kidnapping.

Mr. Shah’s bail application was filed on July 26, a day after his arrest.

Four IPS officers have been arrested in the case including D G Vanzara, Raj Kumar Pandiyan, Dinesh M N and Abhay Chudasma.
