New Delhi, May 8 : The Lok Sabha, the Lower House of Parliament, was adjourned till 2:00 p.m. as the Congress, the Left parties and the Samajwadi Party Member of Parliaments raised voices against the fake police encounters in Gujarat and alleged the involvement of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government in the State. The Rajya Sabha, the Upper House of Parliament, was also adjourned till 1:00 p.m.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned, earlier too; as soon as it met this morning to take up Question Hour till 12:00 p.m.

In Lok Sabha, Congress members shouted slogans against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of shielding the politicians and policemen involved in the fake encounter. In their reply, BJP MPs blamed Left leaders for Nandigram killings.

Yesterday too, the Parliament was adjourned over the same issue.

The Gujarat Police, on Supreme Court's prodding, has arrested three senior police officers for killing Sohrabuddin Sheikh in a fake encounter.

Sheikh was reportedly gunned down on November 26, 2005 after being branded a Lashkar-e-Toiba militant by the Gujarat Police.

Gujarat cadre IPS officers Border Range DIG D G Vanzara and SP (Operations) Rajkumar Pandyan; and Alwar (Rajasthan) SP M N Dinesh Kumar have been arrested in connection with Sheikh case.

The probe revelation has raised a debate across the country over staged encounters by security forces at the behest of political bosses.
