Delhi: After Sanjiv Bhatt was rebuked for his conduct of contacting Opposition Congress party, NGOs and their activists to influence the Supreme Court, the sacked Gujarat cadre IPS officer tweeted about 'bandwagon of evil' on Wednesday.

Bhatt posted on Twitter: "I am proud of my continual association and collaboration with like-minded people and groups in the ongoing battle against evil. No regrets."

In another post he wrote: "The bandwagon of evil moves on the wheels of injustice as we wait for the arc of the moral universe to bend towards justice."

And yesterday he had tweeted: "It is not enough to commiserate with those crushed by the wheels of injustice. We need to drive a spoke into the wheel itself."

The apex court had yesterday said that Bhatt had not come up with "clean hands" to question the lodging of criminal cases against him.

The SC had also dismissed his petitions seeking a court -monitored SIT probe in relation to the two FIRs against him for allegedly forcing his subordinate to file an affidavit in a 2002 riots case and hacking e-mail of a senior law officer, who is now an Additional Solicitor General, as per PTI.

His allegation was dubbed as totally "false and baseless" that the apex court-appointed Special Investigating Team (SIT) to probe the 2002 Gujarat riots cases had been leaking very sensitive and confidential details.

The top court noted in its judgement the contents of the e-mail exchanged by Bhatt, who was a high ranking officer, with an activist of Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) in which he has "mentioned to create a situation so as to make it difficult for a 3-Judge Bench of this Court to disregard shortcomings of SIT and exerting pressure by the groups and opinion makers in Delhi" in the case of Zakia Jafri seeking lodging of FIR against politicians and cops of Gujarat.

Meanwhile, BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said today, "It’s a matter of great assurance for us, SC rejected Sanjiv Bhatt’s petition. What is truly remarkable is, SC in a judgement has confirmed with positive evidence all the apprehensions we had for so many years. Namely there is a group patronized by Congress party of NGOs, selected bureaucrats, civil servants, police officers who are doing their bidding to defame the Gujarat government, Narendra Modi ji and Amit Shah," as per ANI.

In case of Sanjiv Bhatt, he was in close association with Congress party, he was emailing them about proceeding before Nanavati Commission. He was trying to manipulate a section of media for his own extraneous purposes and what not including collusion with the NGO of Teesta," he added.
