Bhatt was the prime accused in the 1989 custodial death case where he was posted as the ASP in Jamnagar. Bhatt had allegedly detained over a hundred people during a communal riot and one of them had died.

The case concerns with the death of one Prabhudas Vaishnani who had died to to the injuries inflicted upon him under police custody. Six other policemen along with  Bhatt were also the accused in the case.

Bhatt is facing charges under another case where he is accused of planting drugs to frame a person in Banaskantha.
