The issue of Sohrabuddin fake encounter in Gujarat was the focus of attention for sometime during a debate in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday on the Bhopal gas tragedy, with BJP and Congress seeking to score points over each other.

Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj, who initiated the discussion, alleged that the CBI had arrested Shah for the killing involving a terrorist, who had been a convict of TADA and was found in possession of 28 AK-47 and two AK-56 rifles.

On the other hand, Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson was given a "royal farewell" by the Rajiv Gandhi government in spite of being allegedly guilty for the worst industrial disaster in which 15,000 people were killed.

Amid protests from Congress members, she said her party had already sought a discussion on misuse of CBI, which works under the directions of its political masters.
