IMO News Service

New Delhi: The arrest of Gujarat’s DIG rank police officer Sanjeev Bhatt and prime witness in Guajarat carnage has created uproar amongst civil society organizations, civil rights groups and activists. Activists and Civil Rights’ groups have given a nationwide call of protest against Bhatt’s arrest tomorrow (Monday, October 3, 2011). “We strongly condemn the arrest of Sanjeev Bhatt by the Modi government on fabricated charges,” said senior Social Activist Shabnam Hashmi while terming the arrest arbitrarily and unconstitutional.

On a call given by ANHAD, All India Secular Forum and various other organizations, protests are being organized in the of cities of Allahabad, Lucknow, Varanasi, Barabanki, Jhansi, Bhopal, Indore, Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneswar, Pune, Dehradun, Bangalore, Baroda, Jammu, Srinagar, Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram, Hisar, Rohtak, Gonda and Faizabad.

In Delhi, a citizen’s protest will be held at Gujarat Bhawan on Monday, 3:30 pm onwards. “We demand immediate and unconditional release of Sanjeev Bhatt,” said Mahtab Alam, a Delhi-based Civil Rights’ Activist. “It’s clear case of intimidation of Whistle-blowers and shows totalitarian character of Modi regime,” he alleged. He has appealed to justice and peace loving people in large number.

Sanjeev Bhatt is the only police officer, whistle blower, who has given evidence against Modi and has for the first time put in black and white the fact that Modi was involvement in 2002 Gujarat carnage. Though Modi’s involvement was talked about in under tones all these eight years but no one had the courage to take on Modi knowing his vindictive ways of functioning.
