COMMUNAL RIOTS-2012January to December: 2012Compiled ByK. SamuHuman Rights Documentation,Indian Social Institute, Lodi Road, New Delhi – 110 009, (India)Sanjiv Bhatt refutes Jhadaphia's claim (7)AHMEDABAD, January 1, 2012: The suspended Gujarat cadre IPS officer, Sanjiv Bhatt, has refutedformer Gujarat Minister of State for Home Gordhan Jhadaphia's claim that he was not kept “informed” ofthe gruesome incidents in Ahmedabad in the aftermath of the Godhra train carnage on February 28,2002. He also denied that Mr. Jhadaphia was not aware of the Gujarat administration's decision to bringthe charred bodies from Godhra to Ahmedabad for being taken to the victims' native places for cremation.Mr. Bhatt claimed that as Deputy Commissioner of the State Intelligence Bureau then, he too hadcollected mobile phone call records and they tallied with the one collected by another IPS officer RahulSharma that was submitted before various authorities, which showed the presence of Mr. Jhadaphia inthe vicinity of Ahmedabad on that fateful day. Mr. Jhadaphia reportedly made the claims during hissecond “in-camera” appearance earlier this week before the G. T. Nanavati-Akshay Mehta Judicial InquiryCommission probing the train carnage and the post-Godhra riots. Mr. Jhadaphia claimed that on the“Gujarat Bandh” day on February 28, when minorities were brutally killed in Naroda-Patiya and GulbergSociety in Ahmedabad, he was in Gandhinagar for the entire day as the State Assembly was in session.In his first “in-camera” deposition too in November, 2010, copies of which were made public by thecommission recently, Mr. Jhadaphia had maintained that on February 27, 2002, on hearing about the traincarnage, he left for Godhra in the afternoon and was there till about 3 a.m. the next day when he left forGandhinagar. On the way he stopped at his residence in Ahmedabad for just half-an-hour early in themorning to collect his clothes. In both ‘ in-camera' depositions, he had claimed that though he wasMinister of State for Home then and was allowed reasonable freedom to act as per the situation, he wasnot kept informed of the riot situation in Ahmedabad and other parts of the State. Mr. Jhadaphia alsoclaimed that the mobile phone call list submitted before the commission by Mr. Rahul Sharma was “faulty”if it showed the presence of his mobile phone number in the vicinity of Naroda-Patiya or Gulberg Society.He did not come to Ahmedabad the entire day. He, however, admitted having spoken to some of theBharatiya Janata Party and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders such as Mayaben Kodnani and JaideepPatel, both accused in the Naroda-Patiya massacre, but could not recall in what connection he hadspoken to them. While refusing to disclose what transpired during his deposition before the commission,Mr. Jhadaphia later told the mediapersons that he was “neither defending anyone nor levelling falseallegations against anyone.” He claimed that he was only revealing the “truth” known to him as Minister ofState for Home. Mr. Jhadaphia's deposition disappointed the critics of Chief Minister Narendra Modi whoexpected the former Minister to “spill the beans” as he had since developed strong differences with Mr.Modi and quit the BJP to form his own Mahagujarat Janata Party just before the 2007 State Assemblyelections. In a letter to the commission on Saturday, Mr. Bhatt disputed Mr. Jhadaphia's claims andsubmitted copies of the departmental notes signed by him as Deputy Commissioner in the IntelligenceBureau on the decisions to bring the bodies to Ahmedabad from Godhra, the VHP giving a call for a“Gujarat Bandh” with likely repercussions on the communal situation in the State and the building up ofviolent mobs in Gulberg Society putting the lives of the former Congress Member of Parliament EhsanJafri and others in danger. He said all the notes were sent to the Chief Minister, Director-General of Policeand the Police Commissioners of various cities with a copy marked to Mr. Jhadaphia. On the situation inthe Gulberg Society, Mr. Bhatt submitted copies of several notes, first when the mob build-up started andagain after the threat to the lives of Jafri and others, prompting the Ahmedabad Police Commissioner torush adequate force. Mr. Bhatt requested the commission to ensure that the relevant records anddocuments were not destroyed by the State administration.
