New Delhi, Dec 7: The Supreme Court will hear two applications seeking prosecution of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, on December 10, for his recent remarks justifying the killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh in a fake police encounter.

The two applications were filed today, in pending petitions filed by Rubabuddin Sheikh, brother of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and film lyricist Javed Akhtar, seeking CBI enquiry into the fake encounter.

The hearing was fixed by a bench, comprising Justices Tarun Chatterjee and Dalveer Bhandari, when counsel Dushyant Dave and Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the two petitioners, sought early hearing of the application.

Both the counsels submitted that Modi had already justified the killings and he should, therefore, be prosecuted.
