New email leaks show PM Modi, BJP President involved in Gujarat riots: Prashant Bhushan


Renowned Supreme Court lawyer and former AAP leader, Prashant Bhushan, on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP President, Amit Shah, of being involved in infamous Gujarat massacre and ‘fake encounters.’

Bhushan took to twitter to cite the Gujarat’s Additional Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta’s mail to say there was indeed ‘smoking gun’ of the involvement of these two leaders of India’s ruling party in Gujarat riots.

His tweet said;

Bhushan also accused the then Modi government of Gujarat of being ‘hand in glove’ with rioters.

He tweet read;

Bhushan also revealed that Mehta’s confidential reports meant for the court, were being ‘leaked to accused rioters’ as alleged in this tweet.

In August 2011, the IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt too had told the Supreme Court that the Gujarat government, which was meant to prosecute those accused of the communal riots of 2002, had actually been leaking information for use in their defence.  

Bhatt was recently sacked from his job after the union home ministry led by Rajnath Singh approved his dismissal. Bhatt has always maintained that he had to pay the price because he decided to take on the Modi government in Gujarat over its alleged involvement in riots.
Bhatt has also accused Chief Minister Narendra Modi of asking policemen to ignore calls for help during the riots, which killed 1200 people. 

In an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, Bhatt included emails that allegedly show how the state government was sharing information with the lawyers of some of those accused in the riots.

Gujarat riots in 2002 had killed more than 1200 people mostly Muslims.
