published on May 8, 2011

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court’s special investigation team (SIT) has rejected IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt’s claim that he heard Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi instructing authorities not to stop anti-Muslim violence in the wake of killing of karsevaks at Godhra.

The SIT led by former CBI chief R K Raghavan examined Bhatt’s claim that he was present in the meeting where Modi allegedly instructed officials not to stop Hindus from venting their anger over the killing of 57 karsevaks in the Godhra train fire. The investigators concluded that the IIT-educated IPS officer was lying,according to sources.

Sources also said that in its report to Supreme Court, SIT said Bhatt’s motives in levelling the allegation nine years after the purported meeting needed to be looked into. Bhatt has also been accused of tutoring his driver to support the officer’s claim about his presence in Modi’s meeting with officials.
