Ahmedabad: Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt on Wednesday
expressed solidarity with the family of arrested Gujarat IPS
officer Sanjiv Bhatt, whom he described as "a real hero".
Mahesh Bhatt met the officer`s wife Shweta and other
family members at their residence here.
"I have seen a lot of reel heroes, but today I have come
to meet the family of a real hero, and to salute him for
showing such courage," Bhatt said.
"I kissed the hand of Sanjiv`s mother and said she was
blessed with a son who is a real hero," he added.
Rule of law must prevail in the state and whistle blowers
like Sanjiv need to be protected, the veteran filmmaker added.
Bhatt, who has accused Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the 2002 communal riots, was arrested on
September 30 on charges of fabricating evidence after an FIR
was filed by a police constable.
