New Delhi: A Gujarat court will frame charges against suspended IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt in connection with a case involving alleged police atrocity in 1990, in which one person had died.

The court had previously adjourned the session after six other accused had filed discharge applications.

Bhatt, in his petition, had challenged the legality and validity of the order of a Jamnagar district court refusing to defer framing of charges against him in the 21-year-old case.

The court will frame charges in connection with a case involving alleged police atrocity in 1990.

He had sought quashing of the order of Jamnagar court and further demanded stay on all proceedings against him in relation to the case till the criminal revision application filed by him there is decided upon first.

Justice MR Shah, hearing the case, dismissed Bhatt`s petition saying that there was no need to restrain the court from framing charges against the accused.

The High Court, however, observed that framing of charges against Bhatt would be subject to the outcome of his criminal revision application which the Jamnagar court would decide upon after hearing him and the prosecution.
