New Delhi: The apex court would hear pleas of dismissed Gujarat Cadre IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt who is seeking SIT probe into allegation of misuse of state machinery during 2002 post-Godhra riots. He also questioned the alleged roles of top BJP and RSS functionaries and the involvement of some senior bureaucrats on Tuesday.

The applications were heard by a bench which was headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu. These issues were raised by senior advocate Indira Jaising on behalf of Bhatt, who was sacked on August 18.

The IPS officer had filed petitions in the Supreme Court in 2011 against the FIRs that were lodged against him by the Gujarat Police.

One petition is related to an FIR lodged by a Gujarat police constable in Ahmedabad alleging that Bhatt had pressurised him to sign an affidavit testifying that the IPS officer participated in a high-level meeting after the Godhra carnage.

In another FIR, he has been accused of allegedly hacking then state’s Additional Advocate General Tushar Mehta’s e-mail account. Mehta is currently the Additional Solicitor General of India.

In fresh applications, Bhatt had also sought to implead top BJP and RSS leaders and senior IAS officers alleging that they were a part of a larger conspiracy to subvert ends of justice.

The apex court had earlier stayed the criminal proceedings against the officer. In the applications, he has submitted that in 2011, he had sought probe by the CBI but now since the agency is under the control of the Centre, there was a need of an independent Special Investigating Team (SIT) to probe both the cases.
