Suspended Gujarat IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt arrested

GANDHINAGAR: Suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, who had implicated Gujarat CM Narendra Modi in the 2002 riots, was arrested by the Gandhinagar police on Friday.

Bhatt was arrested for forcing a constable to file a false affidavit supporting his claim that he was present in the meeting of CMs where Modi asked police to go slow during 2002 riots.

Bhatt, who is in the eye of storm after he filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court implicating Modi in the 2002 communal riots, was served a chargesheet by the Gujarat home department in connection with his alleged unauthorised absence from duty for the last ten months on Sept 18.
