SC declines Sanjiv Bhatt’s plea in custodial death case
| Wednesday | 12th June, 2019
ew Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday declined to consider a plea by Sanjiv Bhatt, sacked IPS officer from Gujarat, seeking fresh examination of witnesses in a case of custodial death against him.
Bhatt moved the apex court challenging a Gujarat High Court order, which declined his request to summon certain additional witnesses for examination during the trial in the case.
The Gujarat government informed the apex court that the trial court has already reserved judgment in the 30-year-old custodial death case for June 20.
Bhatt is an accused in the 1989 custodial death case during his tenure as the Additional Superintendent of Police in Gujarat’s Jamnagar.
Bhatt was suspended in 2011 for remaining absent without any sanctioned permission and also misusing the allotted official vehicles.
