Ahmedabad: Danseuse Mallika Sarabhai has
filed an application with the Nanavati Commission seeking
permission to question IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt in connection
with his deposition about Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra
Modi.

Bhatt, during his questioning by Central Relief Committee
advocate BM Mangukia on May 23, had alleged that Modi had
tried to undermine proceedings in the petition filed by
Sarabhai in the Supreme Court with regard to 2002 riots.

After the revelation by Bhatt, Sarabhai recently filed an
application seeking permission to cross question the IPS
officer to elicit more information from him about his
allegations against Modi.

The Commission would be deciding on the plea after the
deposition of Bhatt is over and has kept it for hearing on
July 9.
