Ahmedabad: Days after the suspension of Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Sanjiv Bhatt, the Gujarat government has acted against another senior Gujarat police officer for alleged indiscipline.

As per reports, Thursday, a chargesheet has been issued against DIG Rahul Sharma for indiscipline and violation of Official Secrets Act (OSA).

As per the chargesheet cleared by Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Sharma is being held guilty of passing information to the Nanavati Commission without seeking approval from the government. The Nanavati Commission was set up to probe the Godhra train burning incident and the riots that followed.

Reports further claimed that the government has put Sharma in the dock for violating his service rules by alleging before the special investigation team (SIT) that phone call records from Naroda Patia – where 95 persons were killed- case had been destroyed.

Prior to the chargesheet, a departmental enquiry was on against Sharma since February. He was served a show-cause notice for violating the Official Secrets Act and asked to respond.

Reacting to the today’s development, Sharma’s lawyer Mukul Sinha told a news channel: “We have no official confirmation about any chargesheet being served. Unless that is clear it would be not appropriate to respond.”

Meanwhile, Sharma today moved Gujarat High Court against the showcause notice issued to him. He is seeking documents on the basis of which the government put him in the dock.
