Suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt has shot off another letter to SIT chief R K Raghavan stating the probe team has sought copies of the alert faxed by him on the impending riots on February 27,2002,even as the investigators already have the documents.
The SIT had written to Bhatt on January 13,directing him to produce the original or a copy of the fax message by January 14. You are also directed to produce any other documents/ wireless messaged fax messages available with you,which are relevant to the investigation of the above case, the letter had added.
Replying to this the same day,Bhatt said,The SIT has all the documents I handed over to them,including the fax message I gave to the Ahmedabad police commissioner on February 27,2002. It was given to them first in 2009 and again in 2011… it only shows their intention is to hide or suppress or destroy crucial evidence.
