Hindutva Terrorist Narendra Modi

IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt, who has accused Chief Minister Narendra Modi of misusing official machinery during the 2002 post-Godhra riots against Muslims by supporting Hindutva Terrorist, has told the Supreme Court he found two “unusual” emails from the Special Investigation Team probing the riots cases in the personal mail account of Gujarat Additional Advocate General Tushar Mehta.

“On studying the said two emails it was very apparent to the petitioner that someone from within the SIT was leaking very sensitive and confidential details pertaining to the ongoing investigations being conducted by the SIT,” Bhatt says in his petition.

These allegations gain significance as the SIT, set up by the Supreme Court, was at the time investigating Modi, the then minister of state (home) Amit Shah and several in the top echelons of the Gujarat Police over “misusing state machinery” against Muslims during the riots.

Bhatt says he informed SIT member A K Malhotra about the incident and claims to have produced documentary evidence “to establish that someone from within the SIT was leaking and sharing highly sensitive and confidential information relating to the ongoing investigations with the Additional Advocate General of Gujarat”.

Bhatt’s petition was concerning his appeal for a CBI inquiry into a criminal case filed against him by a Gujarat Police constable in Ahmedabad. The constable, K D Pant, has alleged that Bhatt pressured him to sign an affidavit testifying that he participated in a high-level meeting after the Godhra carnage in which the Chief Minister was present and allegedly made anti-Muslim comments.

Issuing notice, a bench of Justices Aftab Alam and R M Lodha directed the Gujarat government and the Centre to file their replies on Bhatt’s plea by August 8, the next date of hearing.

Bhatt’s statements come at a time when the SIT’s position is at an all-time low with the court even refusing to give a copy of amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran’s “elaborate” report on the Gulberg Society case to it on Thursday.
