The Congress on Tuesday demanded that all riot-related cases of 2002 in Gujarat be immediately transferred out of the State, in the wake of fresh reports of “collusion between the government of Gujarat and the lawyers for the riot accused.”
Party spokesperson Manish Tewari pointed out that action so far had been seen only in those cases that had been heard outside Gujarat, even as he accused the Narendra Modi government of victimising IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt for filing a Public Interest Litigation petition. He alleged that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) had leaked information on the investigation of the riots to a State law officer.
