CPM for immediate release of Sanjiv Bhatt

CPI(M) said Bhatt`s arrest on "concocted" charges showed how the Narendra Modi govt was trying to cover up its involvement in the 2002 communal riots.



New Delhi: The CPI(M) on Saturday demanded immediate
release of senior Gujarat police officer Sanjiv Bhatt, saying
his arrest on "concocted" charges showed how the Narendra Modi
government was trying to cover up its involvement in the 2002
communal incidents.
The party Politburo maintained that Bhatt had "told the
truth about the connivance of the Chief Minister and the state
administration in the communal violence against the minorities
in 2002" and filed an affidavit on the matter before the
Supreme Court.

Condemning the arrest, the CPI(M) demanded that Bhatt be
accorded protection to pursue the matters he has taken up
before the judicial system.
"The arrest of Bhatt on concocted charges is a telling
commentary on how the Narendra Modi government is resorting to
all coercive and illegal measures to cover up its role in the
communal pogroms of 2002," the party said in a statement.

Bhatt was arrested after he was suspended and "other
attempts (were made) to harass him", the CPI(M) said and
demanded his immediate release.
