Times Now reported that Congress has demanded a CBI probe and said that the authenticity of the sting CD must be checked and that till then, Modi must step down. They also said that they did not want to check the credentials of the person who made the CD.
Zee TV reported that a PIL was filed yesterday in the Supreme Court against BJP MPs Prakash Javdekar and Bhupendra Singh Yadav alleging that they tried to impede investigation in the encounter case in which former Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah is the main accused.
The petition, filed by Pushp Kumar Sharma, a journalist on the basis of a sting operation done by him, alleged that attempts were made by the MPs to impede the trial and other judicial proceedings in this regard by "manipulating the complainant with the sole intent to protect Shah".
Sharma alleged that he had captured the "criminal conspiracy hatched and executed" by MPs, senior BJP leaders and advocates on concealed cameras as part of his undercover investigation. He also filed CDs of the video footage along with his petition. He claimed in his petition that he had caught the two parliamentarians on tape discussing how to get a blank vakalatnamas signed by the mother of Tulsiram Prajapati, who was shot dead in a fake encounter in December 2006.
