GUJARAT RIOTS UPDATE: ‘I possess some very vital documents related to Gujarat 2002 riots’: Supspended police officer Sanjiv Bhatt

By Abdul Hafiz Lakhani

Ahmedabad: Suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt claimed that he had some very vital documents in connection with Gujarat 2002 riots. He will put it to Sc at an appropriate time.Controversial and openly revolting anti-government IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt has been suspended from his job two days. .. He was not on going to the place of duty for a long time and was openly challenging the government through one and other mean.

Talking with Indian Muslim Observer, he said that his suspension is illogical. he will challenge it in proper forum.he reiterated "I believe it is my painful duty to bring to the notice of this Hon'ble Court that the SIT does not appear to be living up to the enormous trust reposed in it by the Supreme Court of India, to conduct an impartial and thorough probe into the allegations of a larger conspiracy and administrative complicity behind the Gujarat riots of 2002 and hence the present affidavit."

"The leakage of details regarding my earlier deposition and interaction with SIT has eventually found their way to the media and has further jeopardized my safety and the safety and security of my family members.

"SIT has chosen to intimidate certain witnesses and coerce them in to refraining from stating the true facts and thereby has created an impression that the SIT is becoming a party to the ongoing cover-up operation in Gujarat."

""Even today, the situation in Gujarat is such, that witnesses would be afraid of vindictive reprisals and persecution at the hand of the State machinery. Evidently, witnesses serving under the control of State government would be highly reluctant to come forward and take a stand that could imperil their own safety or the safety and security of their families. I therefore request that this Hon'ble Court be pleased to ensure that the SIT follows up on all the leads provided by me in such manner that even reluctant witnesses feel safe and confident to state the truth."

In 2002, Bhatt was based in Gandhinagar as deputy commissioner of intelligence in the State Intelligence Bureau. He is now posted as principal of the State Reserve Police Centre in Junagadh.
