new Delhi: Gujarat’s sacked IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt got a shock from the Supreme Court. The trial will not start again in the lower court. Some witnesses have been dismissed in the court for the petition. Now the way to pronounce the judgment of the lower court is clear. This is a matter of death in about 30 years of custodial death. Now in this case, the lower court of Gujarat, Jamnagar will decide on June 20. Supreme Court told Sanjeev Bhatt that why you did not challenge the April 16 order of the High Court earlier in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court said that in this case, the lower court has reserved the verdict and has fixed the date for the verdict.
The Gujarat government opposed the petition of Sanjeev Bhatt. In fact, the dismissed IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt challenged a Gujarat High Court order in the Supreme Court. Bhatt challenged the decision of the Gujarat High Court on April 16 in which only three more witnesses from 14 out of 14 were allowed to cross-examine the trial of a person’s death case. The High Court has also directed Jamnagar court to complete the trial till June 20. Sanjeev Bhatt has said in his petition that there were 300 witnesses in this incident but prosecutors summoned only 32 witnesses for testimony While there are at least 14 witnesses whose testimony is necessary for this case.
In such a situation, instructions for the rest of the 11 people to be called for witness and the Supreme Court also extended the deadline of June 20. In fact, there was violence in Jamnagar in the year 1990 in India. Bhatt was then an ASP of Jamnagar. During this, 133 people were arrested by the police, 25 people were injured and eight people were admitted to the hospital. In the meantime, after being in judicial custody, an accused Prabhudas Madhavji Vishnani died and in this case police accused in the case of assault. In this regard, action was initiated against Sanjeev Bhatt and other policemen by lodging FIR. But the Gujarat government has not given permission to prosecute this. In 2011, the state government allowed the trial against Bhatt.
