India: Rubabuddin withdraws the court case against BJP President Amit Shah (Suhas Munshi's report)

For 11 years, Rubabuddin Sheikh fought to prove that his brother, Sohrabuddin Sheikh, was murdered on the orders of the then Home Minister of Gujarat. But just 10 days ago Rubabuddin approached the Bombay High Court to withdraw his petition against Amit Shah, who is now president of the ruling BJP.

An eyewitness who was present in the court said, "Rubabuddin looked pale and shaken in the courtroom. It looked like he had cried through the previous night".
