A special CBI court in Mumbai on Friday said there is not enough proof to prove murder and has acquitted all 22 accused in the 2005 Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.

A total of 22 people, mostly junior officers of the Gujarat and Rajasthan police, were on trial for killing Sheikh, a gangster with alleged terror links, in an alleged fake encounter in November 2005. His wife Kausar Bi was also killed that month and his aide Tulsiram Prajapati shot dead in another encounter by the Gujarat and Rajasthan police in December 2006.
