Gujarat riots: SC dismisses Sanjiv Bhatt’s plea

New Delhi, Oct. 13 (ANI): The Supreme Court today dismissed former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt’s plea seeking an SIT probe into the FIRs registered against him.

The apex court also dismissed Bhatt’s plea to make BJP president Amit Shah a party in the case.

The former IPS officer had on September 14 filed an application before the Supreme Court, asking it to monitor all the FIRs registered against him.

Bhatt had earlier submitted a series of e-mails in the court, claiming that they reveal alleged collusion between the prosecution and defence in several cases related to 2002 Gujarat riots and the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter.

Bhatt also claimed that the e-mails reveal state administration’s attempt to screen Shah from prosecution in the fake encounter case.

Bhatt, who had taken on the Gujarat Government over its handling of the 2002 riots, has been dismissed from service for ‘flagrantly” flouting rules’ with complete disregard to discipline. (ANI)
