Why IPS Bhatt hates Narendra Modi: "Controversial Gujarat IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, who created a ripple by submitting to the Supreme Court an affidavit saying that Chief Minister Narendra Modi wanted to teach Muslims a lesson, has a shady past.
Apart from being indicted by the National Human Rights Commission for planting narcotics in a hotel room to implicate and arrest an advocate of Rajasthan in a drug peddling case, the officer is also an accused in a major recruitment scam that hit Gujarat in 1996.
Documents with The Pioneer show that Bhatt was charge-sheeted on December 12 last year in course of a departmental inquiry into police recruitment in Gujarat in May 1996. Bhatt was chairman of the recruitment process as Superintendent of Police of Banskantha. Sources said Bhatt has not yet submitted his defence.
