Senior lawyer and team Anna member Shanti Bhushan has expressed his desire to defend arrested IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt against the government of Gujarat in Supreme Court.
We have been opposing communalism. We have always opposed Narendra Modi’s and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) line of thinking,” Bhushan told reporters here.
Meanwhile, Bhatt has been locked in a public confrontation with Modi after he had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court accusing the Chief Minister of complicity in the 2002 riots.
He was arrested on a complaint filed by constable K D Pant, who worked as a subordinate with Bhatt in the state Intelligence Bureau.
According to Pant’s complaint, Bhatt had forced him to file an affidavit in which Modi had been named.
