Guj riots: SIT should prosecute Modi, says Bhatt
Ahmedabad: Ahead of the Special Investigation
Team probing the 2002 riots finalising its report, Suspended
IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt today again demanded that it should
seek to prosecute Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his
`complicity` in the Gulburg society riot case.
In a letter written to SIT Chairman R K Raghvan, Bhatt
advised to the SIT that acts of commission and omission on
part of the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Gulberg
Society case tantamount to abetment of gruesome carnage,
thereby he should be charged under provisions of Section 107
(abetment to crime) of IPC.
In the Gulberg society incident in 2002, 69 persons
including former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri, were killed.
The Supreme Court has directed the SIT to file its final
report in the Gulburg society riot case on complaint of Zakia
Jafri, wife of the Ex-MP where she had accused Modi and 61
others for riots. The SIT is likely to file its report soon.
Bhatt also suggested that Modi would be liable to be
charged under sections 109, 112, 115, 117, 118 and 119 of the
Indian Penal Code(IPC), 1860.
Reiterating what he had already told to SIT and the
Amicus Curiae Raju Ramachandran, Bhatt stated in his letter,
by the time of second meeting that he claimed to have had with
the Chief Minister on February 28, 2002, the carnage at
Gulbarg Society had begun in full view of the police personnel
who were deployed there for bandobust duties.
"The Gujarat CM was accordingly briefed about the
police inaction and complicity. He was informed about the
threat to the life of ex-MP Ehsan Jafri and his family," Bhatt
said in the letter.
