With his elevation, says Ms Grover, Mr Shah is now in position to "build his own protection". And some suspect courts and judges are being manipulated in his favour.......A judge who criticised Mr Shah's non-appearance was summarily transferred. Then Mr Modi's office intervened to stop the appointment of a new Supreme Court judge who had previously been involved in investigating the Sohrabuddin encounter case.
It was a hard road for Prashant Dayal to realise his dream of becoming a journalist.
After flunking his school exams, his parents nearly threw him out.
He eventually paid his way through journalism school by working nights as a rickshaw driver, but had to offer to work for free to secure his first reporting job in his native Gujarat.
That tenacity helped him land a scoop leading to one of the closest confidants of India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, being charged with murder.
The indicted aide is Amit Shah, who Mr Modi appointed earlier this week to the powerful post of president of his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Fitting recognition, supporters say, for Mr Shah's decisive role in the BJP's victory in May. And Mr Shah denies any wrongdoing.

But critics say the appointment is starkly at odds with Mr Modi's campaign commitment to cleaner and fairer governance and instead entrenches "a culture of impunity".
The case goes back to November 2005 when police in Gujarat said they had shot dead a suspected gangster called Sohrabbudin Sheikh.
They claimed he was planning to assassinate a senior politician and that he was linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based militant group later accused of planning the 2008 attacks on Mumbai.
