Ahmedabad: Just a day after a top cop in Gujarat accused the Narendra Modi government of targeting him for turning whistleblower in the Gujarat riots case, another senior IPS officer has alleged victimisation in connection with the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.

Rajnish Rai, who has for some months now been on a collission course with the state government, has filed a rejoinder with the Central Administrative Tribunal alleging that he was victimised by his senior officers since he had carried out unbiased probe in the Sohrabuddin case.

Mr Rai filed the rejoinder in the ongoing case challenging his downgrading of the Annual Confidential Report (ACR) by his then senior officers PC Pande and OP Mathur.

In his rejoinder, he alleged that Mr Pande and Mr Mathur had directed him not to record investigation details in connection with the encounter of Sohrabuddin Shaikh and Tulsiram Prajapati.

Mr Rai has also accused Mr Pande of playing an acquiescent role to the criminal conspiracy of the then Minister of State for Home Amit Shah and others who tampered with official records pertaining to the Sohrabuddin case in the office of the Criminal Investigation Department (Crime).

He further allegedthat Mr Pande hid the truth from the Supreme court by deleting facts from the draft Action Taken Reports which were uncomfortable to the state government.
