All members of the state BJP women's wing Mahila Morcha, would send 'rakhi' on occasion of Rakshabandhan to former Gujarat minister Amit Shah, who is behind bars in connection with the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.

"All our members will be sending rakhi to Amit Shah for his good health, his well-being and security," BJP Mahila Morcha President Jayshriben Patel told PTI.

"Members from all districts would be sending rakhis, some have already sent it," she said.

Shah is presently lodged in Sabarmati Central Jail in Ahmedabad, along with other 15 other accused including suspended IPS officers DG Vanzara, Rajkumar Pandia and Dinesh MN.

"How many rakhis would be sent is still not know. The exact figure would be available tomorrow evening, on the eve of Rakshabandhan which is on August 24," she added.

Shah, a former Minister of State for Home and close aide of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was arrested by CBI on July 25 and is alleged to be the 'kingpin' of the entire conspiracy leading to the encounter of Sohrabuddin, killing of his wife Kausar Bi and also Tulsi Prajapati, a key witness.
