IPS Sanjiv Bhatt’s suspension revoked

Ahmedabad, Oct 1 (ANI): The Gujarat government on Monday revoked the suspension of senior IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt.

He was suspended in August last year by the state’s Home Ministry for not showing up to work, and for misusing his official car.

A central review committee that reports to the union Home Ministry had overruled that decision in August this year. The state government accepted its order today.

Bhatt has been issued a letter informing him that his suspension has been revoked.

Bhatt has accused chief minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the communal riots of 2002, in which more than 1000 people were killed.

He had alleged that he was being persecuted for damaging testimony against Modi.

In March last year, he sent an affidavit to the Supreme Court alleging that at a meeting in February 2002, Modi had told senior policemen not to interfere when rioting mobs were attacking largely-Muslim neighbourhoods. (ANI)
