The Gujarat government has rejected the resignation of suspended IPS officer D G Vanzara,citing that he is an accused in encounter cases in the state.
This came after Vanzara sent his resignation letter,in which he accused the Narendra Modi government in Gujarat of failing to protect its “loyal soldiers” who had acted under his “direct instructions”.

Vanzara has been facing charges of conspiracy and murder in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh,Tulsiram Prajapati and Ishrat Jahan encounter cases.
He has been lodged in jail since his arrest in April 2007.
In a 10-page resignation letter dated September 1 and addressed to the additional chief secretary (home),Vanzara has accused the state government,particularly former minister of state for home Amit Shah,of betraying him and 31 other police officials arrested in encounter cases being probed by the CBI.
Although the Gujarat government termed his letter as “inconsequential”,Vanzara,in a veiled threat,said,”Mutual protection and reciprocal assistance is the unwritten law between police and government in such cases.
As the government has miserably failed in protecting its encounter police,there remains no one-sided obligation on my part to protect the traitors sitting in this government.”
