Mumbai: One more witness in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case turned hostile on Friday.

The witness, a junior clerk from Udaipur, in his statement before the CBI had confirmed in the past that the collector’s office had received a letter from Prajapati in which he had expressed apprehension about a threat to his life in jail.

However, on Friday, the witness denied having given any such statement. The court then declared him hostile.
