A sessions court in the Mirzapur rural court campus has kept its decision pending till February 7, following some errors in the chargesheet filed by an investigating officer in the BMW hit-and-run case in which Vismay Shah is an accused.Then police inspector with Vastrapur police, M R Sharma filed an application last month requesting the court to rectify certain mistakes in the chargesheet he had filed on April 15 last year. Sharma’s chargesheet against Shah did not mention the correct date of incident. It showed both the youths, who were killed in the accident, as pillion riders. When he sought to correct the mistakes, he also failed to mention in his application that he was the PI with Vastrapur police station and an IO in the case.
His plea mere identified him as an ACP posted at Vadodara.To this application, Shah’s counsel Mitesh Amin registered his objection. However, public prosecutor Praveen Trivedi maintained that correction in case papers can be done by the prosecution till the time of framing of charges by the court. Following brief arguments, the court reserved its order on the issue. On February 24, 2013, Shah rammed his BMW into a motorcycle near Lad Society. Two youths riding the bike – Shivam Dave, 25, and Rahul Patel, 21, died. He was reportedly driving at a speed of 110 km per hour. Shah managed to escape but surrendered before the police after a few days due to pressure mounted from all sides. All courts have denied bail to Shah till date.
