Sanjiv Bhatt the controversial IPS officer from Gujarat is most well known for making serious but untenable accusations against Narendra Modi. His anti-Modi theories were debunked by none other than the Supreme Court which then proceeded to expose his “unclean hands”.
He has in the past stooped extremely low to spread anti-India propaganda via his tweets about Kashmir. In August 2016 we had reported how he had leveled false allegations against the security forces in Kashmir. He had tweeted a photo of a young boy allegedly trying to hit security forces using a slingshot and had claimed that because of this India has comprehensively failed in Kashmir.
His lies were soon called out and it turned out that the child was only playing with the forces and was not waging a war against the security forces.
But as some people say about habitual offenders, “he’s done it once, he will do it again”, Sanjiv Bhatt has done just that but has stooped even lower this time.
India is currently grieving the death of newly commissioned Army officer Lt Ummer Fayaz, who was abducted from South Kashmir’s Shopian district on 9th May and his bullet riddled body was found the next day in Harmain area of Shopian.
What shocked people even more was the fact that Lt Fayaz unarmed and had gone to attend a wedding when the terrorists kidnapped, tortured, and killed him. People were disgusted, and Sanjiv Bhatt gave them another reason to feel even more disgusted.
This is what the discredited cop tweeted on Thursday regarding the death of Lt Fayaz:
Do we really know who killed Lt. Fayaz? Couldn’t it be the handiwork of renegades on the payroll of Doval & Co. to escalate the conflict?

It is indeed tragic that such a person was once part of the police force of India. Does it reflect his own mindset? It should be noted that Bhatt is accused of many custodial deaths and charges of murder were framed against him on orders of court.
It should be noted that even the Hurriyat leaders or other motormouth politicians of Kashimir had not pointed fingers at India in the killing of Lt Fayaz, but Sanjiv Bhatt showed them the way. Terrorist group Hizbul Mujahideen has now repeated the charge, joining ranks with Sanjiv Bhatt.
Blaming Indian army or agencies after killing people has been an old trick of terrorists and Islamist elements, which has been now revived by Bhatt. The Islamist propagandist blame Indian government even for the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, who were killed and expelled by Islamic terrorists in 1990s.
Sanjiv Bhatt’s tenure as an IPS officer was always controversial. In 2011 he was suspended for remaining absent from duty without permission. His services were finally terminated in August 2015 on the recommendation of the Union Home ministry.
Looks like his hate for Modi has now transformed into hate for India after Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of the country.
