IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt, who has accused Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi of misusing state machinery during 2002 post-Godhra riots, has alleged that SIT probe details on riot cases were leaked to a top law officer of the State government.

Mr. Bhatt, in his 19-page supplementary affidavit filed before the Supreme Court last week, alleged that someone from within the Special Investigation Team (SIT) was leaking sensitive and confidential details related to investigations conducted by it to Additional Advocate General Tushar Mehta.

Mr. Bhatt, an Inspector General-rank officer, alleged in the affidavit that he had seen e-mails from the SIT probing the riots cases in the personal mail account of Mehta.

Mr. Mehta on his part lodged a complaint with the State cyber cell accusing Mr. Bhatt of hacking his e-mails, police said.

“A case has been registered against IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt after a complaint was lodged against him by the Additional Advocate General of Gujarat High Court accusing him of hacking his e-mails,” Joint Commissioner of Police of Sector-I Ajay Tomar said.

“An FIR has been registered (under the Information Technology Act-2008) at the Vastrapur police station, and investigations are underway,” another police official said.

Incidentally, Mr. Bhatt and Mr. Mehta have been family friends since long.
