AHMEDABAD: A city sessions court has granted regular bail to ex-IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt in connection with the charges of fabricating evidence to frame Prime Minister Narendra Modi and 62 others in the criminal conspiracy behind the post-Godhra riots of 2002.
Bhatt was booked in the case along with social activist Teesta Setalvad and retired DGP RB Sreekumar on June 25, 2022, a day after the Supreme Court rejected an appeal filed by Zakia Jafri against a closure report by an SIT on her complaint to probe a larger conspiracy and allegations of involvement of Modi and others in the conspiracy.The apex court had remarked about the elements who wanted to keep the pot boiling.

The former IPS officer was arrested through a transfer warrant from a Palanpur jail, where he has been lodged as an undertrial in a 1996 Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) case.
Though Bhatt was granted bail on Thursday, his incarceration is likely to continue as the trial in the NDPS case is in its final stage. He has also been sentenced to life imprisonment in a 1990 custodial death case in Jamjodhpur.
