Supreme Court rejects Sanjiv Bhatt’s wife’s plea challenging his arrest in drug planting case

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a petition filed by disgraced former cop Sanjiv Bhatt’s wife Shweta Bhatt, challenging the investigation against her husband who has been accused of implicating a Rajasthan-based lawyer in a 22-year-old narcotics case.

According to the reports, the Supreme Court bench comprised of CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph were of the view that the facts of the case are highly contentious, and said the Court is not inclined to intervene at this point. “The court cannot interfere with ongoing investigations,” said the bench.

The top court said that petitioner could apply for regular bail and ordered them to approach the High Court in accordance with the law and specified that the dismissal of this petition will not affect their further appeal in any other courts.

Former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt was arrested by the Gujarat CID over a 1998 case of planting drugs. The Palanpur Drug planting case pertains to an incident in 1998 when Sanjiv Bhatt was serving as the DCP of Banaskantha. He was then accused of trying to frame lawyer Sumersingh Rajpurohit in a fake narcotics case under Narcotic Drugs & Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Act by planting 1.25 kg opium in a hotel room in Palanpur in Banaskantha district in 1996.

Sanjiv Bhatt’s wife, Shweta Bhatt had moved three petitions in the apex court alleging that her husband has been taken into custody in “the most arbitrary manner”. She had accused of not letting Bhatt execute Vakalatnama and any other documents required mandatorily to file a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court.

Sanjiv Bhatt, a known baiter of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been caught several times for running anti-India propaganda and disgracing women by sharing morphed images and fake news.
