Ahmedabad: The wife of arrested IPS officer
Sanjiv Bhatt has written a letter to the Union Home Minister P
Chidambram stating that he apprehends danger to his life from
a "vindictive administration".
"Sanjiv has strong apprehension of being physically
ill-treated and danger to his life. We are in potential danger
from a vindictive administration," Bhatt`s wife Shweta said in
the letter to Chidambaram.
"My husband has been victimised and arrested merely
because a few politicians apprehended serious action against
them because of the evidence Sanjiv is likely to give in the
pending criminal cases," Shweta further said in the letter.
"I want the central government to ensure safety of my
husband and his dignity should also be restored," She told
reporters after writing the letter.
"I request you to initiate appropriate steps to
safeguard right and liberty of my husband and also keep an eye
on the victimisation meted out to him. I fear that he may be
embroiled in a series of false cases that have no basis to
simply harass and intimidate him," she said in the letter.
"All that my husband has done (that has upset the state
administration) is that he has done his duty as he is an
officer of Indian Police Service" she said.
