Narendra Modi slammed for destroying 2002 riot documents

Gandhinagar: An NGO representing some of the victims of 2002 Gujarat riots Monday moved an application before the Nanavati-Mehta judicial inquiry commission probing these cases, seeking various directions on the state government over police documents the state government said had been destroyed.

Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM) convener Amrish Patel moved the plea urging the probe panel to direct the home secretary to state on affidavit as to which specific records of the state intelligence department were destroyed for the period between Feb 27-May 31, 2002.

The NGO has also urged the panel to direct the government to give the name of the officer who ordered to destroy the documents for the period along with the reasons for doing so.

The application states that the government should also state and produce the certificate of actual destruction of the documents which are claimed to be destroyed.

The NGO has also urged the panel to inquire from the state government as to whether any documents or records of the director general of police's (DGP) office, the DGP's control room , control rooms of the city police commissioners of Ahmadabad, Vadorara, Rajkot and Surat for this period have been destroyed or not.

The state government's counsel S.B. Vakil told media persons June 29 that the government had destroyed the intelligence bureau (IB) records for the year 2002, in 2007. He had said the state IB records such as control room phone records, official vehicles logbooks etc. were already destroyed.

The matter will be heard on July 9.
