The CBI has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of the bail granted by the Gujarat High Court to former state minister Amit Shah and sought an urgent hearing.

The petition was filed in the Deputy Registrar's office around 10.30 PM last night after the top brass of the premier investigating agency decided to move the Apex court for cancelling the bail.

Senior lawyer KTS Tulsi, who appeared for CBI in the High Court, accompanied CBI officials when the petition was filed. The Court will be on a brief Diwali recess from Monday. The Deputy Registrar is the court's Vacation officer.

It is likely that the petition may come up before the Vacation bench of the Supreme Court on Saturday.

The Gujarat High Court had yesterday granted Shah bail, three months after he was arrested in connection with the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.
