The VHP on Monday sent a legal notice to Ahmedabad Police Commissioner,accusing some policemen of trespassing at its old office on April 19. The notice also alleged that the state government reportedly terrorised the VHP,threatening to implicate it in crime for sending a letter to the Chief Minister requesting him not to demand death penalty for the Hindus who were imprisoned in the riots cases.
Recently,the state government had sanctioned Special Investigation Teams request to seek death penalty for former minister Maya Kodnani and others in the Naroda Patiya rioting case. Following this,the VHP was quick to write a letter to the CM not to sanction SITs request.
The legal notice has been sent to the police commissioner through a lawyer,D G Shukla. The letter states that on April 20,five men entered the VHPs old office located on the second floor at Madhav Sadan,behind Jagannath Temple in Jamalpur. The policemen informed the person present in the office that there had been a security alert. The letter stated that if there was any alert,why the police did not inform VHP office-bearers .
