Full text of Sanjiv Bhatt's letter written to Narendra Modi

Gandhinagar: In the eye of storm after he submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court implicating Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 communal riots, senior Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Sanjiv Bhatt was Sunday served a charge sheet.

The charge sheet is in respect of the accusations for which he was to appear before the inquiry officer for a preliminary probe at 11 a.m. Monday.

Bhatt, who recently responded to Modi's open letter addressed to the people, said he had received an official communication to be present before the inquiry officer for the preliminary enquiry relating to his alleged acts of misconduct.

However, at 2.45 p.m. Sunday, he was served a charge sheet.

On Friday, retired additional Director General of Police (DGP) R.B. Sreekumar submitted an affidavit before the Nanavati-Mehta Commission, corroborating what Bhatt had stated before the special investigation team, the Supreme Court, the Nanavati Commission and the amicus curiae.

Bhatt, in his affidavit before the apex court, had said he was present at a meeting called by Modi on the night after the Godhra train carnage where the chief minister urged police officers to look the other way -- to enable the majority community vent their anger against the minorities.
