SC refuses to entertain disgraced former cop Sanjeev Bhatt’s plea seeking security for family

Bhatt was arrested last year by the Gujarat CID for his involvement in a narcotics case in 1998. He was sacked from service in 2014.

The Apex Court has refused to entertain the plea of sacked Gujarat cadre IPS Sanjeev Bhatt’s plea seeking the security of his family. Bhatt was asked to approach the Gujarat High Court with his plea by a Bench of Justice A K Sikri and Justice Abdul Nazeer.

Bhatt was first suspended in the year 2011 for remaining absent from duty without permission and misusing official vehicles. He was later sacked in August 2014.

Last year, he was arrested by the Gujarat CID on allegations of planting drugs to arrest a lawyer in Banaskantha 22 years ago.

In October last year, Bhatt’s wife Shweta Bhatt had moved the Supreme Court with three petitions alleging that her husband was arrested in an arbitrary manner and challenging the investigation conducted against her husband who was accused of implicating a lawyer in a narcotics case.

The Supreme Court had however refused to interfere with the ongoing investigation in the case. His wife had also contested Assembly elections in 2012 on Congress Party’s ticket against the then Gujarat CM Modi from Maninagar constituency in Ahmedabad but had lost the election.

Bhatt is known for his Modi hatred. From sharing morphed pictures to posting vile memes on Twitter against PM Modi, Bhatt has done it all to express his feelings for the PM. Bhat has not stopped at being anti-Modi, time and again he has also indulged in spreading anti-India propaganda on social media. He once posted a picture questioning the security forces in Kashmir which was widely shared by Pakistani handles.
