Criminal history of Sohrabbuddin:

Sohrabbuddin was not an ordinary criminal as projected by the petitioner


in the alleged encounter case. Sohrabuddin had spread his tentacles in four
states viz. Gujarat, Rajasthan, MP and Maharashtra. He was working in tandem
with mafia dons like late Abdul Latif and Daud Ibrahim. With the active support of
Dawood Ibrahim, Rasul Parti, and Mammumiya Panjumia, he was continuously
smuggling in dangerous weapons and other contraband from Pakistan. In one
case alone, detected by the DCB crime branch of Ahmedabad, 24 AK-56 rifles,
27 Hand grenades, 5250 cartridges and 81 magazines were recovered from one
of his family owned property in Madhya Pradesh.

Following table showing offences registered in different states would make


it clear that Sohrabbuddin was not just an innocent person but a dreaded criminal
working across four states of India and was a serious threat to the security of the
nation.

(Accused No.26: Sohrabbuddin @ Salimbhai Anvaruddin Shaikh: In


his confessional statement he had stated that

he knew Sharifkhan since 1980. He came in contact with Shamim and


Babukhan when he was driving a truck in Mahijpur. In March 1994 during
the EID he went to meet Mahijpur to meet Shamimkhan and Sharrifkhan
and met him at the residence of Shamimkhan. Sharifkhan told him that he
was going to purchase one or two trucks and offered him to serve with
him. Thereafter he purchased one truck. The driver Pappukhan was the
younger brother of Shamimkhan and the conductor of the truck was
Afzalkhan and the number of the truck was MOU-686. In may and June
1994 two trips carrying brown sugar in the truck were done by him at the
instance of Sharifkhan to Bombay. In April 1994 he was told by
Sharifkhan to go to Ahmedabad. He came to Ahmedabad, stayed in
Ajanta Hotel in the name of Shohrab and as per the instruction of
Sharifkhan, one Sattar Chacha handed over a box to him in the hotel. He
brought the said box and handed over the same to Sharifkhan. The box
contained 9mm pistols and cartridges. Again he came to Ahmedabad at
the instance of Sharifkhan and stayed in Ajanta Hotel where one person
handed over Rs. 1 lac as per the instruction issued by Sharifkhan who in
turn handed over the same to Sharifkhan at Mahijpur. In June 1994 he
came to Ahmedabad along with the cleaner of the truck and he stayed in
Ajanta Hotel at Mirzapur. One person came to the hotel and handed over
to him one box. The box contained 30 carbine guns and 100 cartridges.
He in turn handed over the said box to Ajjukhan who was an accomplice
of Sharifkhan and who went to Mahijpur with the box in the truck. He
himself went to Mahijpur by train. In July 1994 he again came to
Ahmedabad at the instance of Sharifkhan. Sharifkhan had told him that
silver belonging to him was lying in Ahmedabad and therefore he was
instructed to come to Ahmedabad along with Shamim Pappukhan the
driver and Afzal the conductor. He went to Ahmedabad in Truck No.MOU-
686. Pappu and Afzal had gone to one factory for the purpose of
unloading the goods while he himself and Shamim dropped down at
Kathwada and then they came to Astodia. He stayed in Hotel Ajanta.
Sharifkhan had given him three currency notes of Rs. 100/- denomination
and told them that if the notes were shown to the persons approaching
them then he would talk with them. Thereafter he had a talk with
Sharifkhan on telephone at Mahijpur. He gave the instruction to change
the Hotel. Shamim was asked to stay in Hotel Ajanta while he went to stay
in A-1 Guest House near Railway Station and stayed there. Thereafter he
contacted Sharifkhan on telephone from A-1 Guest House and on next
day at 4.00 p.m., two persons came to the guest house. He had shown the
currency notes which were given by Sharifkhan. Thereafter as per their
previously hatched plan, he followed the two persons in the auto rickshaw
and the persons who came to the guest house followed them on Yamaha.
Thereafter they went to the Amardeep Transport where Pappu, the driver
of the truck, met him and informed him that the truck was loaded.
Thereafter he, Shamim, Afzal and one unknown person followed the
Yamaha motor cycle in a truck. The truck was taken near one mosque at
Vatva. Thereafter, the persons who came on Yamaha motor cycle
requested them to wait. At about 10.00 p.m., three pardanashin ladies
came in the Maruti van with three persons including two persons who
came on Yamaha. The name of one of the lady was Zarina. The Maruti
Van was parked near the truck and the box lying in the Maruti van was
loaded on to the truck. Thus, nine long boxes were loaded in the truck.
Thereafter, he sat near the driver’s seat with Pappu and went to Mahijipur.
Sharifkhan in the mean while managed one truck bearing No. MP-14-B-
9177 Tata 1210 LP. The weapons were subsequently shifted in the said
truck with help of Afzal and Shamim. It contained 32 AK-56 rifles,
cartridges and magazines. The transfer of weapons was made near the
pond situated at some distance from Mahijpur. Sharifkhan thereafter told
him to keep the weapons at his residence for some days. During the night
hours the weapons were kept in the back portion of his house. On the
next day he purchased four containers and the weapons were put in the
containers and few of them were buried. Sharifkhan, in the month of
October-November, came in Maruti Van bearing No. DL-2-8224 and they
met at the house of Shamim and at that time Afzal informed that some
persons have come from Gujarat and they were interrogating Pappukhan
at Malva Transport. In December, January and as well as in February he
stayed in Ahmedabad. Salim and Rafiq RD came in Maruti Car bearing
No. CTK-4605. He came along with them to Zarania and thereafter they
went to the well situated in his field. He had brought 4 AK-56 Rifles, 8 to
10 magazines and one box of cartridges. Then he went with them to
Indore and from there he had returned to Ujjain. Subsequently he came to
Ahmedabad at the instance of Sharifkhan and stayed in the house of his
sister Ramzani Gandhi. Thereafter again in the month of June 1995 he
went to M.P. where police came to have a search at his place. He
apprehended danger and therefore to conceal weapons, he threw all the
weapons in the well and bombs and cartridges were buried near the well."

The antecedents of the witnesses relied on by CBI:

• RAMAN KHODIDAS PATEL AND DASHRATH KHODIDAS PATEL AND


THEIR ASSOCIATES

Popular Construction Pvt. Ltd., a construction firm owned by real brothers


Raman Khodidas Patel and Dashrath Khodidas Patel is into the field of land
trading and building construction since many years. Under the head of
construction, both the persons are involved in land mafia. Their modus operandi
is to prepare forged and fraud documents of land and buildings, to use forged
documents as real, to cheat, to mislead governmental and non governmental
authorities to fulfill their personal motive of earning money by any means. They
are taking support of notorious criminals to achieve their target of grabbing land
by any means. They are having this nexus with serious criminals who are known
to them since long. Their area of such illegal business spreads to Ahmedabad
city, Ahmedabad district and Gandhinagar district.

It has come to notice that one Gopal Chaturbhai Amin resident of


Gandhinagar is also attached with Raman Patel and Dashrath Patel in this illegal
business of land grabbing. All these criminals in connivance with each other
would hatch the conspiracy to grab any pre decided land/property/building for
their personal monetary benefit. After that they will prepare any kind of forged
documents of the said land/ property/building and put their claim of propriety on it
by any illegal means. They would not hesitate to put any government official
under any kind of risk. Also they would use the muscle power of notorious
criminals to fulfill their objective. By any means they would conspire to claim the
ownership of the land/property/building for their personal and monetary benefits.
Many cases have been registered against them in the said matter. Government
officials have become the complainant in few of such cases.

It is found from their criminal record that they do not hesitate to involve
anti national criminal like Sharif Khan, who is currently operating from Pakistan,
in such cases. In one of the case registered, it is found that this duo of Raman
Patel and Dashrath Patel had invited a notorious criminal namely Sohrabuddin to
intervene in a land/property dispute. Both the brothers had threatened the
complainant through Sohrabuddin and in turn the complainant was forced to pay
some money to Sohrabuddin. Moreover in the same case money was even
transferred to Sharif Khan, based in Pakistan. A list of cases registered is
attached herewith.
