Mumbai: "Mera paani utarte dekh kinare par ghar mat bana lena
Mein Samundar hoon, laut kar aaunga"

(Don't build a house on the shore thinking my tide has ebbed,
I am the sea, I will come back)

These were the words of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, when he was arrested in 2010 in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case, India TV reported.

Shah was a Gujarat home minister at that time with the UPA in power at the Centre. He allegedly gave a nod to the Gujarat police to kill the dreaded gangster Sohrabuddin, who died in 2005 in an encounter.
