Blow to fight for justice; Gujarat riots report leaked to RSS man

Saturday August 06, 2011 03:59:24 PM, News Desk

Malegaon: Gujarat IPS officer Sanjiv R. Bhatt in an affidavit has alleged before the Supreme Court that probe reports on the 2002 post-Godhra riot cases were forwarded by a state government law officer to an RSS man who used them to help riot- accused chalk out their defence, a media report said.


To support his charge that politicians in connivance with state government functionaries were engaged in a cover- up operation to secretly help the accused in riot cases Bhatt has annexed a number of hacked emails.


According to Mailtoday, Bhatt in his affidavit, has pointed out that email exchanges showed that reports by the apex court- appointed Special Investigation Team ( SIT) with regard to the probe into nine major cases of riots were sent to additional advocate general Tushar Mehta last year from a state government email.


Mehta allegedly forwarded the reports — purportedly sent to him by under secretary ( home) Vijay Badekha — to RSS ideologue Gurumurthy Swaminathan who in turn prepared a note on the basis of the reports and sent it to lawyers appearing for the accused before the Supreme Court.


Gurumurthy, on his part, denied being part of any such operation. “I have never received any email pertaining to the ongoing SIT probe from Tushar Mehta or anyone,” Mailtoday quoted him as saying said.


He laughed when asked whether he was a recipient of information about the sensitive probe that threatens chief minister Narendra Modi.


“Reports to the contrary are mere concoctions. I cannot recollect having received any such email,” he added.


Meanwhile, Bhatt has annexed another series of emails showing an attempt to help a chargesheeted accused in the Gulbarga Society massacre allegedly with the connivance or support of CM Modi himself, the report claimed.


The IPS officer alleged that Mehta had himself prepared a draft petition for the chargesheeted accused who had approached the apex court for relief and had even kept the chief minister’s office in the loop.


Pointing to the email exchanges, Bhatt said Mehta had sent a draft petition — to be filed before the SC — to the lawyers of the chargesheeted accused in Delhi on April 4, 2010.


Mehta prepared a reply affidavit to be filed before the apex court on behalf of the Gulbarga accused and forwarded a copy to the principal secretary to the chief minister on April 15, 2010.


Mehta also forwarded a copy of the petition and the affidavit by the accused to Gurumurthy.


The email exchanges, which Bhatt claimed to have hacked as part of his duty to obtain intelligence with regard to commission of offences, showed that most affidavits filed on behalf of the state government passed through Gurumurthy.


“The most objectionable aspect is that Sri Tushar Mehta has on one hand drafted the affidavit to be filed by the accused and on the other hand has also prepared the state’s affidavit in reply to the accused’s affidavit,’’ Mailtoday quoted Bhatt as saying in his affidavit.
