An Indian American Muslim advocacy group on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia to monitor and ensure an intimidation free Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the alleged fake encounter killings of Soharabuddin, his wife Kausarbi and his associate Prajapati allegedly at the hands of the Gujarat Police.

The Indian Muslim Council-USA (IMC-USA) in a statement today alleged that in order to subvert and discredit this CBI inquiry, a massive advertising campaign has been launched in the Gujarati media by unknown entities to defame the CBI and dub it with various defamatory labels.

In separate letters sent to India's Prime Minister and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, IMC-USA president Rasheed Ahmed said, "The advertising campaign aims to create a political atmosphere where it would not be possible for the CBI to conduct a fair investigation.

As such, this constitutes active interference in the judicial investigative process and may result in the subversion of justice.
